Create an itinerary including Celtic Hypogeum
A descent into Celtic Hypogeum is also a step back in time, through a network of connected caverns whose origin and original use remain mysterious. Situated near the center of the city, the underground historic site encompasses several rooms carved into the rock face. Wandering the corridors and chambers of the hypogeum, you'll notice three masks, their function unknown, as well as benches and wall niches. There are conflicting ideas about the monument's purpose, from Celtic funeral site to a Roman-era prison. Go to tourist information center to gain entry, as the doors may be locked. PutCeltic Hypogeum into our Cividale del Friuli journey maker site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • You need to ask for the key in the entrance of Tempietto Longobardo, then you can go by yourself after leaving them an ID. Steep uneven stair, humid and dark atmosphere. There are 3 small masks...

  • Very interesting and diverting (free) dive into history. If you like caves and ancient tombs, this one is for you. You have to get the key at tourist information at Piazza Diacono Paolo.
  • The cave was beautiful and also the altar. But Italian is above all, big stories and English two words. During the tour at the back no light to see where you were walking.
