  • Interesting place full of history and well preserved. There are many cathecombs in Rome and in Italy, but these ones are amongst the best to visit. Take your time exploring but a little information...  more »

  • Must watch. Stunning.
  • At The moment it is not yet open to the public; From what I have been told should be accessible from the early months of 2019. The Mausoleum was born as a burial place of Constantine; But because of the sudden death of his mother, in 328 A.D. The complex and also the sarcophagus of red granite that we can admire at the Vatican Museums will be surrendered. A Few little curiosities: To the left of the mausoleum, observing the church inside, there is a small wall; It will be up just under 1 metre; This is what remains of the Costantinian basilica that was part of the complex. The name Torpignattara derives from the fact that in the Middle Ages the mausoleum had been elevated with a tower and because of a collapse some parts had collapsed; Leaving exposed a series of "Pignatte" that were used to reduce the building material and to attach, but without prejudice, the resistance of the whole structure. These whistled are still visible on the top of the mausoleum.
