The small catacomb is carved out of a limestone ridge near Mount Bisenzio. It consists of a large room which was once divided into three rectangular rooms with volcanic tufa walls.

One may still observe the loculus-shaped tombs, arcosoli, as well as some form of floor paving.

The absence of any decorative elements does not allow for some kind of accurate dating; the typological comparisons and similarities with other southern Etruscan catacombs, instead, suggest the generic date of the fourth-fifth century.
