The most horrifying place in Rome - Crypt - keeps thousands of Capuchin's bones and only people of iron nerves feel free to go down to this place.
The Crypt is situated in the Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini church. It is made in the Baroque and decorated with bones of more than 4 thousand monks that were buried in the Trevi fountain area.

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.
