Niet spectaculair, maar zoals alle ondergrondse bezienswaardigheden in Rome, historisch interessant. Blijkbaar een deel van de enige authentieke gevangenis die Rome rijk was; gevangenisstraffen zoals vanaf de 'Verlichting' tot vandaag bestonden nog niet. Daarnaast is er de legende van Petrus en Paulus... Vlak naast het Capitool, dus een omweggetje waard!
