Alcantarilha, Portugal ossuary chapel (Capela dos Ossos)

A tall grotto with Christ at the top of what looks like a layer cake made of bone; there is information on this site in Chapters One and Five of the book. If you happen to find yourself in Alcantarilha someday and really want to have a bad time, go hang out with the drunk guys in the bar on the other side of the plaza.
