In the early Christian period, these creepy catacombs were something of a high-society burial ground, known as the Queen of Catacombs. Seven popes and various martyrs were buried in the 13km of tunnels between 309 and 555. They retain a lot of their original decoration, including the oldest-ever image of the Madonna, a scratchy fresco dating to the early third century.
