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.

  • 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.)

  • Cemetery with bones brought from San Gennaro catacombs. Creepy and uneasy place, but on other hand a must see place.

  • This experience was impressive. It is a bit scary and weird for us as forgeiners to see the remains of approximately 40,000 people. But the overseers of this special graveyard will make a great effort to give you some background information.
