The Catacombs

Paris underground:
At the name of catacomb, you may turn pale and look for another place to visit. Think again ! The catacombs are part of the most unusual tour of Paris. Originally quarry to build this labyrinth of underground passages were used as catacombs in the late eighteenth century, when it was decided to close all Parisian cemeteries, for reasons of hygiene and sanitation. A journey of almost 2km located about 30m underground (twice as deep as the metro!). The galleries are filled with bones, which gives a special atmosphere, accompanied by slab bearing quotations from sacred texts, literary or philosophical murky atmosphere … guaranteed !!! visit the Catacombs.
