The catacomb of Sant’Agnese is a catacomb of Rome, located at the second mile of Via Nomentana, inside the monumental complex of “Sant’Agnese fuori le mura”, in the modern Trieste district, near our holiday home Ninuphar Maison.
A place that we recommend to visit during your stay in Rome.
The name of the catacomb derives from that of the virgin and martyr sant’Agnese, the only martyr mentioned in the ancient documents buried in this catacomb. Uncertain is the date of his martyrdom, which dates back to one of the persecutions against third-century Christians, especially those ordered by Decius (249-251), Valeriano (257-260) or Diocleziano (303-305).
This and much more you can visit while staying in our beautiful city in our holiday home in Rome Ninuphar Maison.
