Catacombs of the Cappucini Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

The catacombs are a macabre yet fascinating labyrinth where thousands of dessicated bodies of the city's inhabitants, dressed from head to toe with grimacing features and contorted postures, are exhibited. Hanging from the walls, they are protected by a grille, further adding to their sinister aspect. This is the last resting place of some 8 000 mummified Capuchin monks and wealthier citizens, including children and young people, whose state of preservation is remarkable.

    Es un lugar único e impresionante. Vale la pena acercarse. Cogiendo un taxi, serán unos 10 o 15 minutos desde el centro de Palermo. Solo comparable con las catacumbas de frailes capuchinos ubicada en un lateral de la Chiesa di Santa María de la Concezione en Roma, sobre Vía Venetto, casi al comenzar desde la Piazza Barberini, pero las de Palerno son mucho más grandes y variadas. Destacable es la momia de una niña pequeña vestida y ataviada.


    A nosotros no nos pareció nada negativo, pero es cierto que personas muy impresionables pueden llegar a sentirse afectados. No es recomendable para niños pequeños.
