The Crypt was constructed in XVII century. When the building was finished the remains of monks deceased in XVI-XVII centuries were taken to this place. All the walls of the crypt are "decorated" with the skulls and bones of Roman monks. The Barberini princess that passed away as a kid also lies here.

Entrance is free.
