Its plastered and beautifully decorated ceiling is supported by many substantial columns constructed, like the walls of the room, of bones faced with skulls. Many of the skulls have been gilded, so that the overall appearance is not stark, but actually rather warm and "elegant," in a ghoulish sort of way.

Address: Praça 1º de Maio, S. Fransisco church
Directions: ride aside from the Church of St. Francis (sao Francisco).
