At the crypt of the former St. Michael's Chapel, next to the Duomo, are five of nearly forty mummies found in Venzone in centuries. The first discovery, that of the Mummy called "the hunchback", was in 1647. The mummies are dead bodies buried in tombs within the Cathedral; due to the formation of a mould (the Hypha pers. bombicina) who held all the bodies there was the mummification process. Today they represent a wealth of invaluable anthropological interest.
