Queuing to eat the 'pasteis de Belem'. Belem is a suburb of Lisbon and famous for its crispily baked custard tarts. The original recipe came from the nearby Jeronimos monastery and is a heavily guarded secret. These pastries have been baked on the premises since 1837.

Another Capello dos Ossos, located next to the entrance to the Church of St. Francis at Evos. This Chapel of Bones was built in the 16th century by a Franciscan monk who wanted to stress the transitory nature of human life. This is clearly shown at the entrance 'Nos ossos que aqui estamos pelos vossos esperamos' (We bones that here lie, for yours await). The number of skeletons used is estimated at around 5.000.

'Stop here and consider the fate that will befall you.' The Bones Chapel at the Church of Carmo in Faro in the Algarve, the southern part of Portugal. The bones and skulls which line the walls are those of over 1.200 Carmelite monks that were exhumed from the nearby church cemetery. A grim reminder of the brevity of human existence.
