Via Cappuccini 1, Palermo, Italy, 90129
No trip to Palermo is complete without a visit to the catacombs found under the Convento dei Cappuccini. This fascinating and eerie place has some 8000 bodies preserved, all dressed in specially made outfits. Find out about the various chemical and drying processes used to prepare the corpses and marvel at the systematic way they were organized according to sex and profession. A separate cave contains the remains of two-year-old Rosaria Lombardo who was preserved almost to perfection by a meticulous embalming process.
