What to expect

Enjoy a guided tour of the Fontanelle cemetery, in the Mater Dei district of Naples. The area, once outside the city's Roman walls, was converted into a cemetery during the 1656 plague and was then used also during the epidemics of the following centuries.

During the last century, the rite of the 'pezzentelle souls', associated to the cemetery bones, speard through the population of Naples. People adopted a skull and took care of it, hoping that this could help them through graces and intercessions. Your expert guide will tell you more about this tradition and about the legends that surround this mysterious place. Continue your experience through the Sanità district, where you will see beautiful baroque buildings and churches.
