"Les Catacombes" Catacombes Tip by OrlandoBR

Catacombes, Paris: 12 reviews and 19 photos


In the 18th Century, the bones of an old cemetery (Cimitière des Innocents) were transported to the Catacombs.
Very funny phrases are inscripted along this underground, macabre Paris attraction, beginning with 'Arrête - C'est ici l'empire de la mort' (Stop, this is the empire of death). It's interesting to notice the kind of people who are interested in this place. Everybody laughed a lot when I was there, so I guess everybody's searching for some morbid fun... you may see my corresponding travelogue for extra pictures.
