San Bernardino alle Ossa


"Church & peculiar chappel with ossuary"

This church, of medieval origin, has been rebuilt many times. Finished in the 18th century to resemble a civil villa and mounted by an octagonal lantern. There is an annex of a chapel war memorial on a square plan which contains thousands of human remains which are said to have belonged to victims of the plague of 1630, or to Milanese who were massacred by plundering goths. The most likely hypothesis is that these are the bodies of the deceased of the adjoining Hospital.
