The Catacombs of Paris
Situated 20 metres below the heart of Paris, the Catacombs house the remains of millions of Parisians from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Formerly the location of quarries whose limestone was used to build the French capital, visitors can see endless arrangements of bones in the long maze of the Catacombs. The dark galleries and narrow passages are also filled with a series of maxims, poems and sacred passages that are sure to spook anyone who enters. Famous remains include writer Jean de La Fontaine, painter Simon Vouet and French Revolution leader Georges Danton. Each 45 minute tour covers a distance of approximately 2 kilometres.
