Also known as the bine house, this is a collection 600 artistically painted skulls. Representing the ideas and ideologies moving from history, these skulls and the art on it shows hoe people and their vision have moved and changed.

The Ossuary is near the town center, next to a small church on a slope. It wasn’t a standout building. The church & the town cemetery right next to it were more attractive. We would have walked past it without Google Map. It was a...More

This could have been creepy but after seeing the love that went into this place, it was wonderful. A lot of historical life is here. Sacred to be there.

Hard to find, but as you walk thru the town from the parking areas to the south, you will want to head up the village to the church on the hill to your left. There is a small, picturesque cemetery there that overlooks the lake...More

This is a small chapel, on the grounds of St. Michael's church-it's not a macabre attraction, but focuses on the love and respect given to ancestors. It's worth a stop-and the entrance fee is only E1.50.

The town for centuries ran out of room in the tiny cemeteries so they put you in the ground, waited a while, then dug you up and stacked your bones in this room. It's really weird. And something I've never heard of or seen before....More
