Quirky site you can't miss Sep 14, 2008
This is a little spooky but a must see. This Ossuary (like a Crypt) displays the bones along the walls and cielings. But unlike others many of the bones are actually desplayed and dressed as if they are friars. The Crypt holds the bones of 4,000 friars. But each of the 5 rooms tells a story.

towards the end its the time will pass and we will end up like them..... DEAD!

(told u it was spooky!!)

It is amazing though.... and I recommend at the entry you buy one of their postcards which tells you the story of each room so you can understand it as you go along.

Also, be warned photography is a NO NO (i guess to make you buy their postcards.. which are really bad quality!)

It is free but the lady at reception will press you to give a donation for the church!
