Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Umbria / Province of Terni / Ferentillo / Chiesa di Santo Stefano - Mummie di Ferentillo
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.

De rit ernaar toe is prachtig. Spectaculaire bergtoppen en rotswanden waar huizen tegen gekleefd lijken te zijn. Wij combineerden deze bezienswaardigheid met de Cascate della Marmore. Best het kerkje ... more »The ride to it's beautiful. Spectacular mountain peaks and rock faces pasted against where houses seem to be. We combined this point of interest with the Cascate della Marmore. Near the Church and do best in the morning, then the light comes from the right side. Beautiful pictures of the cypresses and the monastery, which now partially serves as a hotel. There is nothing to do here, it's a wonderful quiet place where you can walk around. The Church is small and modest. The frescoes not of a great quality. Much damage and little explanation but still bother.
