The Catacombs of the Capuchins of Palermo are composed of long galleries communicating in the tuff, for an extension of about 300 square meters.

Around 2,000 skeletons and mummified bodies are kept in these rooms, making the Catacombs of Palermo the largest and most extraordinary collection of mummies in the world.

The sauces face death in the white niches, with clothes that have been extraordinarily preserved for centuries and with the signs bearing the nam and the data of death.

The legend says that among these bodies there would also be that of the Count of Cagliostro, unnecessarily sought by Napoleon when he visited the convent.
