Naples' oldest and most sacred cemetery is now a Christian pilgrimage site when San Gennaro's body was buried here in the 5th century. It feels like a parallel world as it exists right underneath the main city markets. The corridors and broad vestibules, treasures including 2nd-century Christian frescoes, 5th-century mosaics and the oldest known portrait of San Gennaro can be found here.
