We like things a bit more of the beaten track than just the normal sights, and are happy to say this was a most interesting experience and certainly made our trip a bit more memorable. The location of the crypt was easy to find and great value at 6 euros each. Before getting to the intersting parts you have the... More

One of the weirdest, creepiest, most spectacular things I've ever seen. Historians can tell us what Caesar had for breakfast, but meanwhile no one can figure out who decorated these niches with tens of thousands of human bones (nor WHY). You have to see it to believe it. Words don't even do it justice. At first, as you go through... More

The crypt is not worth it. I was really excited for this because it is different than the norm & a little off the beaten path. But, I was disappointed. There are only 4 small "rooms" decorated with bones. But, they are covered with dust so it doesn't look very good. There are no pics allowed. Be sure to cover... More

I was on a European tour and our tour guide said to go to this but did not really tell us what to expect except that it was not for the feint of heart. But wow. It is a little expensive to get into the church, before going to the crypt you have to go through a sort of museum... More

There is nothing like this any where else - even the catacombs. You'll see intricate art work composed with human bones. Sounds macabre - yes, yet you'll be astounded by the precise designs.

For 6 euro, you get to see creepy, but amazing, art. The museum is meh, but the six rooms decorated with bones is really cool. Where else can you see bones so beautifully designed? This is definitely a off the beaten path, must see. Since this is in the back of a church, women and men are expected to cover... More

Yes, this is another location where you will be expected to cover up (like the Vatican). My impression of the six rooms was that it was interesting what you can do with a lot of human bones and some plaster. Definitely not worth the price of admission for me but others seemed to be enthralled.
