Chapel of Bones
Part of the Royal Church of St. Francis, the chapel was constructed by Franciscan monks in the late 16th century, built as a solution to accommoodate the bones from the city’s many cemeteries that were taking up much land. The monks decided the chapel would be a helpful place to meditate on the transience of material things in the undeniable presence of death and made clear by the message above the chapel door: “We bones, are here, waiting for yours.”
