On the Via Veneto, not far from the Via Barberini, is the Church of Santa Maria della Concezione (no, the church won't interest children). Downstairs is the Capuchin Cemetary. Beginning in 1528, the monks began to decorate the church crypt with the skulls and bones of their deceased brothers. The result is a macabre, but spectacular, Baroque masterpiece encompassing five chapels intricately designed using nothing but human bones. Better than any spooky Halloween house the kids have been to. report a problem
