Marvel at a crypt full of thousands of bones, and learn more about the Capuchin Monks of Rome on a 3-hour guided tour. Enter the Church of Our Lady of the Conception of the Capuchins, and get an introduction to the history of the church.

See a masterpiece by the artist Reni, who created the “St. Michael the Archangel” in 1635. Then, admire a painting of the “Stigmatization of St. Francis” by Muziano. Discover other important art housed in the church, before going inside the museums to see hundreds of portraits of the monks who lived in the monastery. The atmosphere gets darker as you descend to the crypt, where thousands of bones cover the walls, floors, and ceiling arches.

Hear about the Capuchin cardinal Antonio Barberini, and how he ordered the remains of thousands of Capuchin friars to be exhumed and transferred from the friary of Via dei Lucchesi. The friars then began to bury their own dead here, as well as the bodies of poor Romans beneath the chapel where the Capuchins would pray and reflect each evening.

See the bones of 4,000 friars, buried in the crypt between 1500 and 1870. Look inside the 5 subterranean chapels, lit by dim natural light through tiny cracks, and small fluorescent lamps. Marvel at a macabre work of art of intact skeletons draped with Franciscan habits, and bones arranged in elaborate designs. Discover the ghoulish sign that reads, "What you are now, we once were; what we are now, you shall be.
