Information

The Alcantarilha’s Capela dos Ossos (Bones Chapel) is situated on the southern side of the 16th century Nossa Senhora da Conceição Parish Church, located on the historical centre of the lovely Alcantarilha village, in the centre of the Algarve region.

This Chapel dates from the 16th century and has the same style of other “Bones Chapels” that exist in the Country, such as the ones in Évora, Faro or Lagos.

The Chapel’s interior is practically all covered and ornamented with more than 1500 human skeletons, with the only exception of a sculpture with the figure of a crucified Christ dated from the 16th century.
