The crypt

The Capuchin Crypt in Brno is a funeral room mainly for Capuchin friars. The crypt was founded in the mid 17th century in the basement of the Capuchin Monastery in the historical centre of Brno.[1] The bodies of people buried there turned into mummies because of the geological composition of the ground and the system of airing.[1]
