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.
* Crypt of the Resurrection
* The Mass Chapel
* Crypt of Skulls
* The Crypt of Pelvises
* Crypt of the Leg Bones and Thigh Bones
* Crypt of the Three Skeletons
