A scary chapel in the city center!

San Bernardino alle Ossa

Why locals love it

It's hard to find a chapel all covered in skulls and bones, and it's even more rare to live in a city with such a chapel! Milanese people are proud of this small church, we like to think that this one was the first one in the world, then copied by some others around Europe.

Why you should visit it

With a short detour from the city center you can find this small chapel where you can experience a great horror atmosphere! The walls are covered with centuries-old skulls and bones from the close former hospital: try not to be scared, you'll feel like they're all looking at you!

Special tip

Try to talk with the smallest skull under the altar: it may... reply!!
