I saw the cemetery here on trip advisor and decided to go. So very glad I did. The place is a bit creepy as there are millions of bones surrounding you and skulls everywhere you look. I read a bit of the history and lore associated with it and was glad I had that knowledge while viewing. Seeing how people prayed to these poor ppl and their souls and then adopted the skull (and placed them in a small shrines engraved with sentiment. Many are engraved with prayer answered, where a person after visiting had a dream in which they understood how their prayer was answered returned to the ossuary and "felt" which soul answered their prayer, they then created a shrine for that particular skull (soul). There are many small alters to pray and even a small pulpit and pew where masses are held. There are a few statues inside. We visited the famous skulls of the captain and the sweating skull. My 7yo son found it fascinating yet was too uncomfortable to leave any offerings. I left small change here and there to the souls. There is this clothed skeleton without a head with all kinds of offerings on it that creeped me out a bit, but I was in awe of this place. I've been to Naples 2x and hadn't heard of it till trip advisor. This is a must if you are in Naples! You will be pleasantly surprised and in awe of what you see.
