Catacombs, Mylos, Greece

Updated: Jan 31, 2022

Could be the oldest catacomb site in the World!!

Milos, one of the most beautiful islands of the Cyclades, has a very long history, like all other Greek Islands. The island is the site of Catacombs which tell the tragic story of early Christians in Greece.

According to archaeologists and historians, the awe-inspiring catacombs of Milos have served as the graveyard for 7,000-8,000 Christians, making the site the third most sacred early-Christian monument, after the Holy Land and the catacombs of Rome. The Catacombs of Milos, dating from the 1st - 5th century, are among the most important of the 74 discovered worldwide, together with the catacombs of Rome and the Holy Land. It is possible that the Catacombs of Milos are older than the ones of Rome.
