Catacombs of Paris
Discover the underground Catacombs of Paris!
Since their creation, the Catacombs have aroused curiosity. The origin of the Paris Catacombs, which it would be better to call "Municipal Ossuary", goes back to the end of the 18th century.
The name of ‘Catacombs’ was given to this ossuary in reference to the Catacombs of Rome, a name originally given to an ancient cemetery situated not far from the Appian Way.
