  • A purgatory church is constructed as a place for people to pray for the souls trapped in limbo between heaven and hell. in this case reason for building the church was a churchbell that killed 40 people in 1686. The church has a sinister and macaber look and feel. On many places in the church there are skeletons and skulls found and several Black Madonnas. Top this of with some real clerk mummies and you have another weird church with skulls (like the one in Otranto).
  • Fantastic building with skelets from old legacys
