Description

The most macabre but truly unique sight of Faro is the Capela dos Ossos, the chapel of the bones. This small chapel is lined with the bones of monks that were exhumed from Faro’s graves and their skulls look down and tourists from the walls and ceilings. The chapel has the bones of more than one thousand monks who were buried in the graveyard.
