What people are saying:

A very interesting display of bones in an artistic format. Walk through different cells that use different parts of the body to create the artwork.

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.
