Ossuary and Church of St. Stephen

Mysterious is the nameless woman who died in the 17th century and came to light again as a mummy in 1982.


Visitors enter a dark room with an old wooden ceiling that seems low in contrast to the church. A wall more than two meters high with artfully piled bones await the bodily resurrection here.

After the abolition of the old cemetery, they found their final resting place in this chapel. Even today, the ossuary serves as a burial place. The wall measures 24 meters and about 22,000 skulls are piled up.
