Monastery of San Francisco in Lima
Built in 1674, the Monastery of San Francisco is located near Plaza Mayor in Lima, Peru. Although this impressive structure has a church and library, it is famous for its catacombs containing the skulls and bones of more than 25,000 bodies. The catacombs, which are situated under the church, served as a cemetery until 1808. This building is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
