Ossuaries in Portugal

Ossuaries in Portugal

Capelas dos Ossos or "chapels of Bones" were found all over medieval Europe. There is another, similar chapel in Faro, for example.

This image is from the famous Igreja de São Francisco in Evora.


There are other ossuaries throughout Europe including the Skull Chapel in Czermna in Poland, the Sedlec Ossuary in the Czech Republic, the Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini in Rome and the San Bernardino alle Ossa in Milan.
