Pompei, Italy. Mystery of an abandoned church.

After explored the lost city of Pompeii, I thought ‘okay so that’s all in Pompei’, then I met this funny dude who’s been traveling around Europe. ‘There’s this abandoned church where you can catch the best panorama view of this city!’, I started following him.

This structure stands out of nowhere in the city of Pompei. I can’t find any single info on the Google maps, the only clue I have is some logo inside indicate it’s a Baptist church or something.

From the top, you can see both the iconic structure and Mount Vesuvius, the volcano responsible for the lost city of Pompeii. The view on top is fantastic.

Holes are everywhere. I was told by an Italian Master’s student I met in Venice, ‘The governors in Italy has no interest in investing in artifacts and preservation. Often did you see some abandon buildings or half-built structure was due to, they discovered artifacts below, having no resources to dig them out, they have to abandoned the place.’ I do not know how true is that extend. The holes seem empty, something was out, or it could be some heater or water system, I do not know.

A total waste of resources. The pipes are still running, water flooded the whole basement.

The stone reads ‘S.Giovanni’.

After did some research, the only suspicious name I found is ‘Assunta Ponzo Institute’. It appears to be a school which had shifted to a new location, but this place remain unused and withered.
