There are two desiccated corpses, one of which is a child, dangle from an iron chain.

The bodies spent 30 years decomposing in the soil before being exhumed.

    The ossuary under St. Jacob’s Square (Jakubske namesti) and partially the Church of St. James in Brno, Czech Republic with more than 50,000 skeletons from the 17th and 18th centuries, rediscovered in 2001. It’s been opened to public since June 2012.

    The ossuary of San Bernardino alle Ossa, a 13th century church in Milan, Italy.On the site of the church there was a cemetery between 1145 and 1210, when a chamber was built to house all the bones. A chruch was attached in 1269, restorated in 1679 by Giovanni Andrea Biffi, who decorated the walls of the ossuary with bones and skulls.

    The Capela de Ossos, a small chapel built out of bones. And there is a complete skeleton covered in gold, too! It was built in 1719, and stands in Faro, Portugal.

    The Catacombs of Paris, France, opened in the late 18th century.There are more than 200 miles (320 km) of labyrinthine tunnels under Paris, and a small part of that (1.1 mi or 1.7 km) is an underground ossuary which holds the remains of six to seven million people
