When Capuchins left their old friary near the Trevi Fountain, they decided to to transfer the bones of friars who had been buried under the Church of Saint Bonaventure. In accordance with Capuchin law, which did not allow burials to take place within the churches, an underground cemetery was designed. Here they deposited the bones brought from the old friary, and from then on this has been the burial place of the Capuchins.
Start your visit with Capuchin Museums and learn about their culture and spirituality. Continue towards Crypt of the three skeletons, the only area where the human skeleton can be seen in its unadorned entirety. Next visist the Crypt of the leg bones and thigh bones. Admire the Crypt of the Pelvises that contains two Capuchins serenely reclining in an arched niche. The crosses in the ground mark the graves of seven Capuchins. Stroll through the Crypt of the Skulls, with its famous hourglass reminding us that time flies.
