    The Capuchin Catacombs is something to se if you are interested in mumified or emlamed bodies and the art. It was scary to visit at first and those who have a weak stomach are suggested not to go. Macabre, and yet awesome, this most unusual site represents a custom that was deeply rooted in the traditions of Palermo's wealthy society. One of the most surprising human remin in the catacombs is that of Rosalia Lombardo which looks real even though she was emblamed in 1920 and looks like she is sleeping peacefully.

    Convento dei Cappucini - bus 327 from Piazza d'Independenza and ask driver. Skeletons galore - clad and arranged by sex and occupation. One incredibly well preserved by special process.
    YOU MUST DECIDE if you have children whether they will be thrilled or very frightened. If in doubt give it a miss.
