This is a small chapel, on the grounds of St. Michael's church-it's not a macabre attraction, but focuses on the love and respect given to ancestors. It's worth a stop-and the entrance fee is only E1.50.

The town for centuries ran out of room in the tiny cemeteries so they put you in the ground, waited a while, then dug you up and stacked your bones in this room. It's really weird. And something I've never heard of or seen before....More

This was quite the experience--reading about and seeing old painted skulls. Worth the several Euros to go into the ossuary and experience first hand the sight of so many skulls.
