This could have been creepy but after seeing the love that went into this place, it was wonderful. A lot of historical life is here. Sacred to be there.

Hard to find, but as you walk thru the town from the parking areas to the south, you will want to head up the village to the church on the hill to your left. There is a small, picturesque cemetery there that overlooks the lake...More

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 burial room is located next to the Catholic Church cemetery. Admission fee is 1.5 euros. This is where the bones of the former occupants of the cemetery reside. I believe they said they unearthed the remains after 15 years because space was at a...More

We only needed about ten to fifteen minutes to view this site but it was indeed very interesting. It's a short walk from the town center and you have a nice view from its location, next to the church. There is a nominal 1.5 Euro...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.

This place is tiny. I would allow 30 minutes max. It's a tiny room holding the skulls. Each skull is lovingly painted. It is not the gruesome experience I was expecting but a loving uplifting experience. The cemetery is... More
