The Museum and Crypt of Capuchins is located in a crypt under the church Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini. The museum presents bones of nearly 4000 Capuchin friars stored in the crypt. The bones are arranged into macabre decorations. The Capuchins have been using the church since 1631. Some of the bones used for the crypt were transported there from their previous destination. The museum introduces the visitors to the Capuchin order, its history, and present-day activities.

We always like museums that are slightly out of the norm, so this one really appealed to us. Both the museum and the church are wonderful and the Crypt of Capuchins itself is something different, something out of this world. We were really amazed at how many bones were used! We took aprt in a guided tour, but this is not something you will necessarily need.
