About Crypt and Catacombs of San Giovanni

The Catacombs of St. John in Siracusa contain somewhere in the range of 20,000 Early Christian tombs.

In any case, all that remaining parts today are the honeycombed passages of purge boxes that were plundered by grave looters long prior.

They are entered through the reminiscent vestiges of a Norman church.

The Catacombs of St. John are the main ones open to the general population of the other underground graveyard still in Syracuse.

Guests enter the "universe of the dead" from the Chiesa di San Giovanni, now demolish. St. Paul is said to have lectured on this spot.

The congregation's underlying foundations backpedal to the sixth century, when a basilica remained here, yet it was in the long run wrecked by the Saracens.

The Normans reproduced it in the twelfth century and it filled in as the church of Syracuse, yet in 1693 a tremor crushed it.
