The Mithraeum is a religious place, a natural cavern that was modified for the worship of the god Mithras. The Mithraeum discovered at Santa Maria Capua a Vetere is one of the most famous in the world and is located near the amphitheatre. A flight of steps leads down to an underground level where it is necessary to go down a corridor before entering the mithraeum, a rectangular room with benches on the sides. There are interesting frescoes of the tauroctony (bull-killing) – an image of the god Mithras plunging his dagger into a bull’s neck – and a bas relief portraying Cupid and Psyche.
