The Catacombs (Les Catacombs) - Paris - Reviews of The Catacombs (Les Catacombs) - TripAdvisor
I learned about the Catacombs after watching a show about it on the Travel Channel. It was easy to find from the street level and easy to navigate, considering you're several feet under th...

Les Catacombs, Paris - Reviews of Les Catacombs - IgoUgo
Ultimately, we reached an opening in the tunnel, and we saw the sign at the top of this page--which translates: Stop! Here is the empire of the dead. The stacks of bones can be seen beyond the sign. They're arranged in some interesting ways. I won't attempt to describe to you my feeling of the Catac...

Les Catacombes - Paris France - Review of Les Catacombes
Every year an estimated 50,000 visitors explore some 910m (2,985 ft.) of tunnel in these dank catacombs to look at 6 million ghoulishly arranged skull-and-crossbones skeletons. First opened to the public in 1810, this empire of the dead is now illuminated with electric lights over its entire length....

iExplore Community: The Catacombs - Paris, France
The Catacombs are a creepy network of underground tunnels (former mines where stone used to build the city were excavated) that are now extensively lined with thousands of human bones. The bones were moved to the tunnels in the late 1700s, when the stench of rotting corpses in local cemeteries becam...

My 1st trip to Paris the Catacombes was on my list of MUST SEES but I missed my window of opportunity (open 2 hrs at 2 separate times a day & closed Monday), so I HAD TO see it 2nd trip. Just thought it would be cool - sort of a gothic thing. Referred to my 1st trip as a Gothic Tour of Paris, not ha...

We made our way to the catacombs hoping to find an extraordinary sight. Unfortunately it was nothing but rooms and rooms and rooms full of bones. I mean, it's interesting and all, but I would rather have seen photos of it... or at least been able to exit the maze once I decided I had seen enough. Un...

The Paris Catacombs - Paris
For a spooky date, today, you can take an eerie walk through the dark passages of the Catacombs past the millions of carefully stacked skulls, each one labelled with the original year of its burial. When you are down there, remember, too, that these burial chambers are only a small part of the tunne...

The Catacombs Paris | Reviews of The Catacombs Paris
A series of tunnels running under the city, the Catacombs in Paris are a pretty eerie place. They're not what I expected either, they're just walls and walls of random bones which have been taken from other burieal areas in the city to stop the spread of disease. You only get to see a very small par...

the catacombs (les catacombs) - paris outdoors - gusto
In 1810, the Montrouge stone quarries became catacombs. Because of a lack of space in the graveyards of Paris, it is here, twenty metres underground, that the remains of millions of Parisians are exhibited. These ossuaries, illustrated by texts, create a chilling atmosphere and describe some of the ...

Going to the Catacombs will give your body some kind of jolt. Being underground, with 6 million lifeless bones should do something for you. For me, while roaming the path of death, I couldn't help but wonder about my own mortality,...
