In my opinion “Catacombe dei Cappuccini” is the creepiest place in the world. From all the places that I had been to, this one is the scariest one. Nowadays the place is open for tourists. You can see around 9000 mummified bodies that are hanging on the walls. The bodies are just everywhere! On top of all that, the biggest “attraction” is the body of a 2 year old girl called Rosalia Lombardo. People say that the girl died in 1920, but suprisingly the body is amazingly preserved and it looks … alive.

3. Hill of Crosses
