Evora Cathedral233488-Evora-Cathedral

Évora’s imposing cathedral (Sé Catedral de Évora) is situated in the very heart of the old city and the UNESCO World Heritage site. The oldest parts of the building date back to the 12th century, which was when the Moors were finally driven out by the Christians. As a consequence it is no coincidence that this mighty cathedral has certain aspects which resemble a fortress.

 

Chapel of Bonescapela-dos-ossos-evora

This peculiar chapel was built in the Gothic style throughout the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.

At the time of the Chapel of Bones’ construction, the city’s two Franciscan cemeteries were overflowing and the remains had to be exhumed to create more space. That’s when three of the monks thought to create a chapel with the bones and skulls serving as decoration for the walls, columns, arches, and domes. Moreover, the bone fragments, were decided upon to form part of the mortar. It is estimated that at least 5,000 cadavers were used in construction.
