Convento Frati Cappuccini - Santa Maria della Concezione, Rome: 14 reviews and 17 photos
The Cappucin Crypt (yes that is where "cappucino" comes from) is where the Cappucin monks "buried" their dead. I say "buried" because, a better word might be "stored" or "kept." Its basically a series of rooms that are absolutely covered in bones. They used bones to make the chandeliers, make clock on the ceiling, skulls and shoulderblades to make putti etc. Plus there's a few in-tact skeletons wearing their robes just kickin it. If you are morbid like me, you will love this.
Address: Piazza Barberini
Directions: It's just off the Piazza Barberini attached to a church. Most tourbooks should have the exact location.
