This unusual cemetery is a very interesting place to visit in Naples. You cannot really call it a cemetery at all. It is more of a collection of remains from various events in history. It is located inside a cave which makes the whole experience rather eerie but quite fascinating. Although it is a cemetery, it is still a very intriguing place to visit. It is said that the remains you can see here were washed up in a flood and put here later.
Stacks after stacks of skulls can be seen everywhere making it a surreal experience. A lot of the bodies buried here belong to people of Naples. They were moved here after the flood during a period when the graveyards in the cities of Europe could not hold enough dead any more. Nameless victims of the Plague epidemic have been given a final resting place in this spooky place too. One thing is for certain. People will find this place quite remarkable.
