About Il Cimitero Delle Fontanelle, Naples

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.

  • Very eerie and sombre. It is what you expect - a vast area of skeletons. There were around 40,000 skeletons in this tomb, which made the whole experience quite surreal. To think that there were so many bodies buried here is quite distressing. I understand that there are many many more skeletons underneath the ground you walk on which have not been dug up. The tombs were a good 10-15 mins walk from the nearest underground station but it was well signposted. It was free to enter.

  • Marvellous place with great mystic skeleton graves. The light is playing enormous role in the cemetery visual and emotional perception. The history behind it is sad, however it is worth visiting when you are staying in Naples, you won't be disappointed.

  • Impressive! A bit scary and creepy but definitely worth to visit. Prepare yourself, it might be difficult for light hearted people.

  • Must see in Naples. Unremarkable expierence. Also a fascinating way up to the Cimitero through the very authentic Sanita district (if you walk from the Museo metro station).

  • Very interesting cemetery. Free entrance and the man at the entrance loves to give a little speech about the place. (Also free, but you can give him a tip.)
