Rome

Cripta dei Cappuccini

27 Via Vittorio Veneto
Rome, 00187, Italy
TEL: 39-06-487-1185

This church and convent in the Centro Storico neighborhood of Rome is not for the faint of heart. Although the 17th-century church contains a reputed Caravaggio painting, it’s the crypt that draws visitors, where there are bones and skulls of former friars and Roman poor uniquely arranged. Fingers, toes, pelvises, spines, ribs, and the rest frame and punctuate the walls with crosses and mosaics in an eerie display of death.
