The Celtic Hypogeum

Close to the Monastero Maggiore you can find the Ipogeo Celtico. It consists of differents underground rooms, digged in the cliff with ancient technique, developed in various levels and ramifications, such as to form a K-shaped building.
A steep ladder leads to the central room, from where three corridors depart.
On the walls there are niches and raw benches, but the greater mystery is represented by three large masks.
The original function of this particular monument,unique in the region Friuli, is still an unresolved question.
There are different ideas about the function of the monument: someone belives it had a funeral use when the Celts used to be in Cividale, others assume that the Ipogeo Celtico was a jail during Roman times.
