Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini is a Capuchin church dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. The church is also known as Santa Maria Immacolata (Our Lady the Immaculate) and Chiesa dei Cappuccini (Church of the Capuchins). It should not be confused with Santa Maria della Concezione in Campo Marzio, nor with Santa Maria della Concezione delle Cappuccine which once stood on the Via Cavour before it was demolished.
At present (September, 21013), the church is closed for restoration.
The façade and the steps leading to the church were altered in the 20th century.
About halfway up the stairs to the church, on the right side, you will find the entrance to the ossuary of the Capuchin friars . When one of the friars dies he is buried in a vault, and after some time his bones are retrieved and placed in this ossuary, where they are arranged in a macabre style. The ossuary now contains bones from more than 4.000 brothers, who died between 1528 and 1870. 
The church has a single nave, and ten side chapels.
The first chapel on the right has two famous paintings: St Michael the Archangel by Guido Reni, painted in 1630, and Christ Mocked by Gherardo delle Notte. The tomb of Blessed Crispin of Viterbo is in the third chapel on the right.
The painting of St Francis with the Stigmata is by Domenichino.
In the sacristy is a painting of the Praying St Francis by Caravaggio
Cardinal Antonio Barberini, who provided funds for the church, was buried here in 1646. The inscription on his tomb: "Hic iacet pulvis, cinis, et nihil" translates as: "Here lies dust, ashes, and nothing else".
