Under the heavily populated district of the Stella district are an ancient necropolis. There has been a gravesite here since the 5th century BC, but the current name comes from St. Gaudiosus, who was interred here roughly nine centuries later, in 453 AD. The walls of the catacombs are frescoed with early Christian symbols from this time, the most famous of which are the fresco of Pascentius and the fresco of Madonna della Sanita. Landslides and mudslides in the Late Middle Ages led to the abandonment of the complex, though in the 17th century nobles and clergy were buried here for some time.
