Tunnelled out of the Capodimonte hillside in Roman times for use as water cisterns, these labyrinthine catacombs were used as a burial site from the fifth century onwards. In 452, the burial of St Gaudiosus - a North African bishop and hermit - made the site an important shrine.

In the 17th century, the Dominican friars that tended the chapel of San Gaudioso in the catacombs built the Greek-cross-plan basilica of Santa Maria della Sanità above it. There's a fine Madonna and child with St Hyacinth, St Rosa of Lima and St Agnes by Luca Giordano in the second chapel on the right.
