Chiesa di Santo Stefano - Mummie di Ferentillo, Ferentillo

3.8
#1 of 18 in Museums in Province of Terni
Specialty Museum Museum
Take an eerie trip to Chiesa di Santo Stefano - Mummie di Ferentillo, a collection of mummies buried beneath the Church of Santo Stefano. Although the bodies weren't mummified when buried, scientists have discovered that a rare microfungus present here resulted in natural, well-preserved mummies. You can still see the hair, beards, teeth, and clothes on the corpses--including a lawyer who met a gruesome death, a mother and her child, and several other people. Try to spot the Chinese pilgrims, too, who died in this location en route. If mummies aren't your cup of tea, stick to admiring the partial frescoes from the 12th-century church. Using our custom trip planner, Ferentillo attractions like Chiesa di Santo Stefano - Mummie di Ferentillo can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
