Piazza Santo Stefano has an area open to traffic and a pedestrian area. The pedestrian area is the one closest to the church: it is paved with cobblestones, on the left side it has a large paved walkway that leads to the facade of the church.
The entrance to the sanctuary has a step (10 cm high).
A double-leaf door (105 cm wide each) and a single-leaf door (80 cm wide) lead into an atrium, from which you can follow two different itineraries: going straight ahead and passing 3 steps (10 cm high each) you enter in the church; while proceeding to the right and overcoming 2 steps (10 cm high each) you reach a chapel and then the Ossuary.


The church
The church of San Bernardino alle Ossa has an octagonal plan, baroque marble altars and two side chapels. On the right of the apse there is a pipe organ. There are also benches with kneelers.


The Ossuary
From the chapel located near the entrance, you pass in sequence: a door (74 cm wide), a corridor (10 meters), a second door (94 cm wide) and then you reach the Ossuary. It is a suggestive chapel on whose walls the bones that were exhumed from the nearby cemetery are exposed. There are benches with kneelers, so there is little space for manoeuvering for people in wheelchairs.
