Catacombs of San Francisco Lima, Peru.

Pictures are not allowed so wasn't able to do much with composition

thanks, I just know that under the church was the cities first cemetery. I don't know why the monks made designs with them. Most of the rooms in the catacombs there is different sections for each bone. So you would have all the leg bones together and so on

Between 70-80K people are under there

Heres a pic of the sections

That first image really strikes a nerve. My first feeling is one of repulsion. But reading about the history makes it a little more bearable. Nonetheless an interesting photograph.
