Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini

The church of Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini, better known as Our Lady of the Conception, is certainly one of the most evocative of the hundreds of churches that adorn Rome. Located in the famous Via Veneto, it was built near Palazzo Barberini by Pope Urban VIII, in honor of his brother Antonio Barberini who was part of the Capuchin order, whose tomb is still preserved in the church in front of the high altar, but reveals its best secrets underground.

The Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini conceals a bleak scene: The bones of 4,000 monks embellish the 5 chapels in the crypt. Some are made into Christian signs, however you will likewise see complete skeletons covered in practices. There’s a message for visitors in the last chapel:

“Exactly what you are now, we once were; what we are now, you will end up being.”

The church of Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini is generally undetected by the crowds of travelers that look for to discover the macabre crypt and its design of skeletons. Although this is a really uncommon and extraordinary experience, it may be inappropriate for extremely delicate persons.
