  • The Chapel itself already describes the transience of life. Be sure to reflect on the pema described and set inside soon right. Very interesting. Be sure to observe the arrangement of bones in children and adults, and to evaluate the reason for construction.

  • I like the architecture of the place, of the beautiful works and religious sculptures, mainly of Santa Clara and San Francisco. But the famous capela dos ossos collides with his visual loss, at the entrance.

  • A Capela dos Ossos de Alcantarilha situa-se anexada no lado sul da Igreja Matriz do século XVI, no centro histórico da bonita freguesia de Alcantarilha, em plena região Algarvia, é imóvel de valor concelhio. A Capela dos Ossos remonta, também, ao século XVI, inserida na mesma linha estilística de outras capelas do género existentes no país, como em Évora, Faro e Lagos. O seu interior está praticamente todo revestido e ornamentado por mais de 1500 ossadas humanas (provavelmente oriundas de um antigo cemitério) com excepção do trabalho de escultura da figura de Cristo Crucificado datada do século XVI (provavelmente proveniente de um antigo altar da igreja matriz). Há também quem diga, embora sem qualquer comprovativo fiável, que estas ossadas seriam de frades Jesuítas que pereceram pela região.
