What people are saying:

The crypt of the church is a work of art, and life and death are evident in every corner. Basically, 3,000 monk bones are used to make these amazing exhibitions, and the monks who dedicated themselves to this monastery are religious because their bones are used to create this religious art.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Capuchin Crypt is a small area comprised of multiple small chapels situated beneath the church of Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini on the Via Veneto near Piazza Barberini in Rome, Italy. It keeps the skeletal remains of 4,000 bodies thought to be Capuchin friars buried by their order. The Catholic order insists that the display is not supposed to be macabre, but a quiet reminder of the quick passage of life on Earth.
