Some places to visit

  • Mithraeum of St. Egyden

    The 'Mithraic cave' in the Gradische/Gradišče massif near St. Egidio contained vessels decorated with snakes and the remains of chicken bones and other animals that were consumed during Mithraic ceremonies.

  • Mithraeum of Rudchester

    The Mithraeum of Rudchester was discovered in 1844 on the brow of the hill outside the roman station.

  • Mitreo delle Sette Porte

    The name of the Mithraeum of the Seven Gates refers to the doors depicted in the mosaic that decorates the floor, symbolising the seven planets through which the souls of the initiates have to pass.

  • Casa del Mitreo de Mérida

    Although this building is not a Mithraeum, archaeologists have found several monuments related to the cult of Mithras.
