Some places to visit

  • Mithraeum of Tiddis

    The Mithraeum was housed in a cave. The vault is almost dome-shaped and in front of the cave there is enough space for a possible adjacent temple.

  • La grotta del Mitreo

    The site was destroyed in the 5th century but some elements, including the benches, can still been seen.

  • Mitreo di Lucrezio Menandro

    The Mithraeum of Lucretius Menander was installed in the early 3rd century in an alley to the east of a Hadrianic building named after the solar god temple.

  • Mitreo di Santa Prisca

    The Mithraeum of Santa Prisca houses remarkable frescoes showing the initiates in procession.
