Geocache Description:



AGT(G) - Capela dos Ossos

A Capela de Ossos de Campo Maior, no Alentejo, localiza-se na freguesia de Nossa Senhora da Expectação, na vila e concelho de Campo Maior, distrito de Portalegre, em Portugal. Localiza-se no Largo Doutor Regala n.º 6, adossada à Igreja Matriz de Campo Maior.

É a segunda maior capela de ossos do País a seguir à de Évora, na Igreja de São Francisco.

Foi construída em 1766 após a explosão num paiol que provocou a morte de mais de dois terços da população em 1732.

O interior do edifício foi construído recorrendo às ossadas das vítimas desta tragédia. O pavimento é do século XX.
