Capuchin Crypt, Via Vittorio Veneto, 27, Rome, Italy

The Capuchin Crypt is not for everyone, but if you can handle coming face-to-face with the dead, it is pretty interesting. The crypt was created during the 17th century with its decor built from the remains of friars who died in the monastery. There are several small chapels including chandeliers crafted from bones and full skeletons posed in their robes. An ominous messages can be seen saying “As we are, soon you will be.” as well as, “As you are, we once were.” Cheerful!
