The Catacombe dei Cappuccini

The Catacombs are a fascinating view of the departed placed fully clothed after death on racks against the walls of this large subterranean burial chamber. Their bodies have dried and mummified over time. Priests, monks, professionals and even children haunt the halls here all in evolving states of mummification. There are over 8000 mummies dating from the 17th through the 19th centuries.
