Santa Maria Capuchin Crypt, Rome

Santa Maria Capuchin Crypt, Rome

Under an unassuming church on a wide boulevard in Rome (Via Vittorio Veneto, 27) lies a macabre crypt where the the skeletons of monks are lovingly arranged into works of art. The ossuary is open during odd hours (9-noon, 3-6, closed Thursdays), so time your visit carefully. Admission is by donation, and photography is not allowed (oops).
