This church is as beautiful as the chapel is disturbing. Very unusual alter and quite ornate interior of the main church makes a nice entrée to the grotesque but compelling spectacle of the bone chapel out the back. I would have liked a bit of signage/explanation in English, so maybe look up some information about the skulls and vertebra lining... 更多
Beautiful church, well preserved and many ornate fixtures. Well worth the 2 euro entry fee, but be aware there aren't many descriptions. The bone chapel is both strange and breath taking, and doesn't feel macabre - it's strangely peaceful
We needed the Satnav to find this church but it was well worth the visit. There is a €2 admission charge but it's worth it for the beautiful gilded altar and church interior. Photos are allowed. The bone room was a bit macabre but OK. Very interesting visit.
This is a fairly small church. I'm no expert but it was incredibly ornate. The altar is one of the most wonderful things I ever saw. How did anyone design that, never mind construct it? I didn't like the chapel of bones but I think you've got to go and see it!. Entry to the church is free - if... 更多
On arrival, this appears an impressive baroque façade and twin bell towers. At the back of the Church are the Chapel of Bones (Capela dos Ossos) and a small courtyard. It is said that the church was paid for with Brazilian gold. The main attraction is the macabre bone chapel which claims to be made from the bones of some... 更多
Good baroque interior, riotous ornamentation but well balanced to left and right of the nave. Has a small organ at the back. Not much light, soft choral music playing in the background. The bone chapel is off to the right and costs 2 Euro to enter for the ghoulishly inclined.
looked for this church as I wanted to see the bones - very interesting to see - 2 euros a ticket - would recommend a visit. Hayley and Simon - (Durham England)
Even if you go only for the Bone Chapel you'll be amazed by the inside and main chapel. The Bone Chapel to be honest was amazing when you think about how it was constructed and the meaning behind the chapel itself. It really makes you contemplate. I was inside by myself and it was a surreal feeling. But the main... 更多
I've been to a few different Bone Churches and this chapel is quite unique and nice in its own way. It worth seeing as well is the Carmo church. Cost is small but its better than the other Ossuary in the city which is just an alter.
