  • given the bad weather which has accompanied on the first weekend of March ... is one of the few things we could see ... highly arranged the gentleman who explained the history of the mummies--admission price acceptable ... pity that like many things in art Italy are left a bit to the abandonment ... but if you happen to Urbania ... go there

  • The church opens only during guided tours (from Monday to Friday at 11.30 and at 16; on weekends a visit at the same time in the morning and two in the afternoon). The entrance and visit only cost 2 euros per person and, after taking a look (and took a few pictures) to the chapel at the entrance, you go to the back room (no pictures) where they kept very well (apart from the natural dehydration) the bodies of 18 inhabitants discovered in a mass grave in the cemetery that stood in this place. As explained comprehensively by Mr. Joseph, our guide, a particular mold has preserved their bodies. The guide knows the names and lives of each one of them works wonders in explanations that go far beyond 20 minutes scheduled for the visit. Really unusual experience and guidance from praise!

  • Visit particular which arouses curiosity, the guide Joseph very cozy, naturally manages to tell the reasons and the stories of people whose bodies were mummified. SA to downplay a reality seemingly macabre even with an audience of children!!!

  • Wonderful Little Church with guided visit to the mummies crypt
  • Special thanks to the help-help (the definition is his) Church of the dead to Urbania that with verve and sympathy only, introduced us to the life, but mostly death, pharmacist Embalmer, Dane crapulone, Renaissance humanist the young man's villain, hanged, murdered and buried alive and that failed, no mean feat, to make it a bit less terrifying even the "sardonic sneer of terror". It is due to his visits to a collection of corpses mummified was less greve and oppressive than it should have been.

  • Beautiful and evocative experience, me and my children did not at all impressed, in fact, it is curious to think that these mummies, known and visited by millions of people, have been preserved for centuries thanks to a special mold that held the bodies of people at the time marginalized by society for their physical or mental defects or why this notable either condemned to death and burial.

  • Church is unique in the world, where you can admire natural mummies thanks to the presence of a fungus on the ground, when burials took place under the churches and then prior to Napoleon's reform. Unique and interesting stories of individual mummies.

  • Well worth a visit. The caretaker, helpful, manages to get perfectly in the story. Definitely recommended.
