Milan, Italy ossuary chapel of San Bernardino alle Ossa

One of the most beautiful of all the ossuary chapels. Despite being in the heart of Milan, it is still relatively unknown–it has nowhere near the fame of some other sites, but is equal to any of them. Perhaps this in part because it seems to be open or closed on a whim rather than any consistent schedule. Absolutely gorgeous, however, and with a well thought out decorative program. Discussed in Chapter Four of the book.
