Visit the most terrifying church in Rome

#28 of 45 things to do in Rome
Place: Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini in Rome, Italy

The crypt at Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini is perhaps the most sinister and unusual place in Rome. Visit it and you will find yourself among the skeletons of four thousand monks of the Capuchin Order - here they found their peace.

There are lamps made of the vertebrae hang here, some skeletons are full length, they are dressed in mantle and it seems that they are about to pounce on anyone who dared to cross the threshold of the crypt.

It's really terrifying, but a very interesting place, that checks any traveler on courage

Tips and hints: don't dress too short clothes (or you will have to buy a cover up for €1).

Prices: entrance to the crypt €8.

Location: Via Vittorio Veneto, 27
