We are on the via Casilina (formerly the Via Labicana), there where the traffic stops from morning until evening, in the area of Torpignattara. Originally, this road was the main artery to connect Rome to the hills that encircled him (Colli Albani). Today Torpignattara is a popular, eccentric area to the southeast of the city, which draws a landscape of concrete buildings made in the 1950s, to which are added abusive constructions. Amid the chaos, there's this church, nothing extraordinary, which gives this great artery. On the left, a small quiet road leads us to the Sainte Helene (Santa Elena) Mausolus and at the entrance to the catacombs of Saints Marcelin and Pierre still closed to the But exceptionally, in November of this year to June 2014, their doors are open to you. It is the third most important catacombs in Rome (18 km of galleries), a unique place in the world for its extraordinary wealth of antique paintings but of surprising modernity, an `underground art gallery` art Roman and Paleochristian.
