Venosa

AN IMPORTANT  BURIAL COMPLEX

Unearthed in 1853, the catacombs of Venosa is among the most significant signs of the once-flourishing Jewish presence in southern Italy between the 4th and 6th centuries A.D. The catacombs are arranged in a network of underground passageways dug out of the tufa rock, in the area around the Maddalena hill. Evidence from the 9thcentury has been found in the epigraphic material, discovered in the Incompiuta complex.
