This was a very interesting and vivid look into the history of these people. The way the corpses have been preserved is extraordinary. I didn't find this creepy, our teenagers loved it and our nine year old was only a little freaked out ;-).

Visited the mummies in Ferentillo after a recommendation from a friend. Very interesting exhibit and a fascinating piece of local history. We'll worth the price of entry.

This not very well known attraction was listed in a local guidebook so we decided to make the few hour long excursion from where we were staying in Montefalco, Umbria. The church was a bit hard to find and we were among only 6 visitors...More
