The exploration of an old pazo, a manor house, near the Roman wall, in Lugo, led to the discovery of a Roman domus, which existed continuously from the beginnings of the Christian Era until the Late Empire. Part of this domus was remodelled to create a room identified as a Mithraeum dated to the early 3rd century A.D. Around 260 A.D. the domus was almost completely destroyed in the course of re-building the city wall. Nevertheless the Mithraeum remained in use for a further 60 years or more.
