The Sousse Catacombs is the place where early Christians sought refuge from persecution. They came to pray as well bury their dead. This underground cemetery dates back to the first century. The 5 km long labyrinth of galleries contain more than 15,000 graves, mostly bricked in. There are few tombs that have glass fronts through which visitors can observe skeletal remains. The necropolis was named after an engraving of the good shepherd once discovered at the site. The relics of stone carvings and epitaphs of the catacombs are now kept in the Sousse museum. You can visit this place along with your trip to Sousse museum.
Sousse Catacombs is located near the museum inside the Medina, so you can take the same train as for Medina. Take the light rail as it connects central Sousse by the Medina (4 Station Sousse Bab Jdid) to Mahdia via Monastir. It stops along the way in various neighborhoods in southern Sousse and the Monastir MIR IATA airport. Then, there are buses - both public and private - and run every half an hour. The best option is to hire a taxi.
