The catacombs of San Callisto is a cemetery on the right side of the Via Appia Antica, after the church of "Quo Vadis." Came into existence about the middle of the second century and are part of a complex that covers an area of 15 hectares, with a network of galleries about 20 km on different floors, reaching deeper than 20 meters. They were buried tens of martyrs, 16 popes and many Christians. They get their name from the deacon (and later Pope) San Calixto, appointed early third century by Pope Ceferino as administrator of the cemetery. Thus, the catacombs of San Callisto became the official cemetery of the Church of Rome.
