Chiesa di Santo Stefano - Mummie di Ferentillo, Ferentillo

(3.8/5 based on 190 reviews on the web)
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.

  • I was not impressed. 10 cases with 3 mummies each ... history and events-managed site ... the series they give you a ospuscolo to read about each Mummy history. ...

  • This attraction, unknown to many, truly deserves to be visited. Inside a church (also of note) are preserved mummies of those who lived in this area, including some Chinese. There's nothing macabre, although mummies. At the entrance are given a booklet with descriptions and explanations, very useful.

  • In the heart of one of the two sides of the double village that make up the country of Ferentillo, specifically a precept, is one of the little gems of the lower Velnerina. The Museum of the mummies is a little gem that conceals memories of a time that they were in a location of great impact which allows you to make a visit in the dorsal traveling from Scheggino and arrives at the Marmore falls. The particular process that has safeguarded the mummies of Ferentillo is clear interest and a recommended visit to all who pass by.
