Discover the famous "Bone Church" in Rome decorated with about 4000 skeletons, an unforgettable "spooky" experience!


There are things, such as the Capuchin Crypt, that even the Romans don't know about their own city that, on the other hand, are known around the rest of the world.

The Capuchin Crypt is a particular friars cemetery entirely built with more than 4000 bodies belonging to the Capuchin Friars artfully arranged to decorate the walls of several tiny chapels. Yes, you got it right! Every single little part, such as the chandeliers or the decorations on the walls, is made of bones, such as skulls, leg bones, pelvises separated and employed to make elaborate columns, arches, and floral designs with great flourishes! The crypt is a small space of six chambers like chapels right below the church of "Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini" along the fancy Via Veneto street, made popular by the movie "La Dolce Vita".

Before getting inside the Capuchin Crypt we will explore the Capuchin Museum, which contains a number of displays and exhibits exploring the lives of the Capuchin friars.

A Recent Review of this tour

Dino presented a strong base of history, information, and lore about the Capuchins before we actually saw the various crypts, which greatly aided our viewing and understanding (so as to see more than a macabre display--had we not understood background, intent, and the like). Once again, Dino's excellent knowledge and guidance enhanced for us this quite unique site in Rome!
