What shall I see

Visit the church of Our Lady of the Conception of the Capuchins. You will discover the magnificent interior and see Guido Reni's altarpiece 'St. Michael the Archangel', Muziano's 'Stigmatization of Saint Francis' and many other artistic masterpieces. Afterwards, you will visit the museum of the Capuchin Monks that hold hundreds of portraits of the Capuchin Monks who lived inside the monastery. The tour continues in a darker and more sinister tone as we take you to the underground crypt where the bones of thousands of exhumed Capuchin friars are arranged along the walls. Cardinal Antonio Barberini, a member of the Capuchin order ordered in 1631 the remains of thousands of Capuchin friars exhumed and transferred from the friary Via dei Lucchesi to the crypt. The crypt (ossuary) now contains the remains of 4,000 friars buried between 1500 and 1870. The crypt is divided into five chapels, lit only by dim natural light and small fluorescent lamps. Some of the skeletons are intact and draped with Franciscan habits, but for the most part, individual bones are used to create elaborate ornamental designs. You will see a "memento mori" plaque in one of the chapels which reads in three languages: "What you are now, we once were; what we are now, you shall be".
