"The most disquieting sight in..." Cattacombe dei Cappuccini Tip by ucbwalker
Cattacombe dei Cappuccini, Palermo: 8 reviews and 3 photos
The most disquieting sight in town is the Cappucin Catacomb, on Via dei Cappucini. The fashionable elite of Palermo in the nineteenth century chose to be mummified and interred here, hanging against the walls of a long underground corridor, slowly decomposing. Now these privileged members of the bourgeoisie are gawked at by tourists seven days a week. Isn't it funny how time can turn things around?
Directions: Piazza Cappuccini Opened: 9.00-12.00 and 15.00-17.30
