Original burial place of St Peter and St Paul


#1

I understand that the 2 saints are buried at the basilicas of St Peter and St Paul. My question is, had they ever been buried at other site right after their martyrdom? I was told that they were originally buried at the catacomb of St Sebastian then Constantine removed them to their current location. I can’t find any resources to confirm this. Is the story true?

See:

and

So the catacomb was a temporary place, not the original burial location which was Rome. Thanks!

I would hope they weren’t buried before martyrdom . . .
