I thought the Capuchin Crypt beneath Rome's church of Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini was intense, but St. Ursula's (built atop the ruins of a Roman cemetery) Golden Chamber where the bones of reportedly 11,000 virgins are made into elaborate mosaics, takes the cake... There is also a skull collection.
