We went in search of the mummies of Ferentillo – what an adventure that was! It rained most of the day….making for some interesting driving over the mountains. We got lost for a while and were about to give up finding Ferentillo when we stumbled on it. This little village is built on the side of a cliff – no...
we were very lucky to spend holidays in Ferentillo, during their annual special town festival. Due to this festival, there was a possibility, to have a nocturne visit, of the mummies museum. this added to the mystery of this place. it is a nice, little museum, with very well preserved mummies. not expensive and well maintained.
This was a very interesting and vivid look into the history of these people. The way the corpses have been preserved is extraordinary. I didn't find this creepy, our teenagers loved it and our nine year old was only a little freaked out ;-).
