The former ossuary (a cemetery for plague victims' bodies) at Ecole Supérieure d'Art et Design Le Havre-Rouen is an eerie reminder of the plague's devastation during the Middle Ages. Take a stroll in the 16th-century, half-timber courtyard, which has four galleries with carved designs. Large beams in the fourth gallery feature haunting carvings of bones and skulls, as well as coffins and gravediggers' tools. Finding the entrance can be tricky. Keep an eye out overhead for a sign with the name of the atrium, which you access through a passage between two buildings,. As you enter the grounds, look to your right to see a mummified cat preserved in the wall.

  • In the n.186 of the street Martainville, typical houses, is a square courtyard that housed an ossuary in Gallery used for the victims of the black death of 1348, identified by the decoration with skulls and bones. A little scary, but very original

  • It was eerily silent square. Reliefs reminiscent of death in the attic room of the Gallery Bone Relic was like (I don't), and cat Mummies and creepy anyway.

  • No one would imagine for its original destination cemetery despite certain details suggest. It offers an image of meditative peace similar to the kiosk of a monastery
