Tips from locals
Strikingly beautiful and impressive for its decoration created by the Capuchins with the bones of dead monks. Chandeliers collarbones and flowers of vertebrae. Especially those who like!
It contains the skeletal remains of 3,700 bodies believed to be Capuchin friars buried by their order.
First time I have been there I could not believe it was true... An entire crypt built by skulls and bones...

An unusual exhibit , a memento mori, made of human bones of monks who lived in the monastery for centuries, a reminder that we are here only temporarily.
