"The Weirdest Decoration Ever" Convento Frati Cappuccini - Santa Maria della Concezione Tip by Jmill42
Convento Frati Cappuccini - Santa Maria della Concezione, Rome: 14 reviews and 17 photos
I know we have all thought about using our dead friends bones to spice up our house decorations, I mean who hasn't, right? Well, the Capuchin monks at the Santa Maria della Concezione Church, located on Via Veneto near Barbarini Square, sure took that idea and ran with it. Every ornament in this place is made out of dead Capucin monks. Their bones were nailed to the wall and arranged in all kinds of patterns. Some form objects like the clock composed of vertebrae, foot bones and finger bones. Now why didn't I think of that!?!
Entrance is by donation and the door is guarded by a soon-to-be-a-lamp Capuchin monk.
It is open 9am to noon and 3pm-6pm from May to October
Super creepy, but super cool.
Oh, they don't allow photos... I just used the stupid tourist excuse for this one...
