About this spot
The Fontanelle Cemetery is an ex-ossuary that contains the remains of an unspecified number of people. It is located in “La Sanità” (or the Sanitation), one of the Naples's richest districts of history and tradition.

The cemetery is known because there was the ritual of the "souls", that is, the adoption and care by a Neapolitan of a certain skull of an abandoned soul in exchange for protection.Every corner, every corridor of the Fontanelle Cemetery is rich in history, anecdotes, legends, and curiosities waiting to be heard.
