Catacombs of San Gaudioso in Naples

The catacombs of San Gaudioso alla Sanità

Le Catacombs of San Gaudioso I'm a real one necropolis located under the Basilica of Santa Maria della Sanità, and represent the second most important early Christian cemetery in the city after the Catacombs of San Gennaro.

These catacombs are named after Gaudioso the African, bishop of Abitine (Tunisia) who came to Naples by pure chance. Following the invasion of the Vandals he did not want to convert to Arianism, so King Genserico boarded it on a ship without sails or oars along with other Christian exiles. When he died, between the 451 and 453 AD, the place of his burial became a cult and from that area began to expand the paleochristian hypogeum cemetery.

Besides the remains of the saint, the catacombs also welcome Paleochristian and seventeenth century elements, frescoes and mosaics of the V-VI century and some tombs reserved for nobles, dating back to the seventeenth century. XVI century a fresco of the Madonna up to then covered by the mud was found here: it is the Madonna of Health (V - VI century), the oldest representation of Mary in Campania.
