If you fancy something slightly spooky then pay a visit to the Museum of the Mummies at the Panteon Cemetery where visitors can observe more than 100 mummified remains; these were discovered in 1865 when the local authorities had to remove some of the bodies from the cemetery to provide more room. The soil had a mineral content in it and this coupled with the extremely dry atmosphere had worked together to actually preserve the bodies. This might sound a bit on the grim side but it is certainly worth a visit as it is truly fascinating.
