Owner description: The walls and pillars of the chapel, built in the century. XVII, are lined with thousands of human bones and skulls. Ceilings with murals realtivas death. Written on a plaque next to the door, the phrase "We bones that are here for your hope", reminds us how fleeting passage through life

Impressive catacomb. Not to be missed. A lot of dark humor on the script of the arch at the entrance of the chapel

It was somewhat macabre, but absolutely interesting. It may not be the only one of its kind in the world but it is well worth a visit. The only thing I did not like about this place was that I had to pay to use my camera.

If you like unusual places full of mistery - this one if for you. The walls of chapel are fully covered by skulls, seems like children or so.
The frustration is a glass barrier which does not allow you to get closer and relatively high entrance fee.

If you're going through Évora, the 'Capela dos Ossos' is a must see attraction. With nearly 5,000 skulls placed in its walls, the chappel is something you won't want to miss.

Worth a visit for about 15 minutes, not as nice as the one in Kuntna Hara but worth a look. Not sure what else to say but it is nicely done and as it was almost Halloween made for a macabe visit.
