The chapel, built on the site of the primitive brotherhood dormitory is formed by 3 naves of 18,70m in length and 11m in width, entering the light by three small cracks of the left side.

Its walls and eight pillars are "decorated" with bones and skulls connected by brown cement. The vaults are of brick plastered to white, painted with allegorical motifs to death. It is a monument of a penitential architecture of ornate arches with rows of skulls, cornices and white ships. It was calculated around 5000, coming from cemeteries, located in churches and convents of the city. The chapel was dedicated to the Lord of the Steps, an image known in the city as Lord Jesus of the House of Bones, which impresses with the expressiveness with which it represents the suffering of Christ, in his walk with the cross to Calvary.

The Bones Chapel is one of the most famous monuments of Évora, in Portugal. It is located in the Church of San Francisco.
