    The Capuchin Catacombs in Palermo, Sicily

    If you go to Sicily you can't miss the capuchin catacombs of Palermo, something that confirms the ghoulish side of this city. A cemetery that contains 8000 mummies, lined upon walls, lying or standing, skeletons, and perfectly preserved bodies. It was active until 1920, when the last body was interred. And hooray! This is actually my first Lomo location in Sicily

    Capela dos Ossos (Chapel of Bones)

    Capela dos Ossos (Chapel of Bones) is located in Portugal, inside the walls of Évora city near the Church of St Francis. It is a small chapel with only 19x11meters built in the 16TH Century but it is a totally different chapel due to the fact that it is made of bones and skulls from 5000 skeletons held by cement!!!
