Bone Church outside Prague...others?

I've been to the ossuary outside Prague that this article talks about. Are there others like this? I know of the catacombs in Paris but I was thinking more along the lines of this Church with sculptures and such.

Darling, there are skeletons dressed in finery and placed in vitrines on the altar of the chapel of the Loreto Convent in Prague.

In Evora, Portugal, there is a 'Chapel of Bones' at the church of Sao Fransisco. It's absolutely unbelievable.

Santa maria della Concezione in Rome (church of the Capuchian friars with crypt chapels with the bones of the departed) may be of interest to you--have to admit I am not quite sure why you want a list of such churches...

The Capuchin Crypt in Palermo doesn't use bones to make "artwork" but the skeletons and mummies there are arranged by occupation/gender and wearing the clothes they were buried in.

Hallstatt in Austria. When I was there, one small girl picked up one of the skulls!

LOL...picked up one of the skulls! Thanks you guys. I just thought these kinds of churches would be an interesting coffee table book...not that I can afford to see them all right now...but some day. Great suggestions.
