Did you know that below the streets of Paris there is an extensive tunnel network that also holds thousands of human bones? When Paris’ cemeteries were overflowing and causing public health problems in the 18th century they decided to exhume the bodies and bury them in the Catacombs below the streets.
For 8 Euros you can walk through the tunnels and see this:
It seems to go on forever. You walk and walk through long dark, and sometimes low-ceiling tunnels lined with the neatly stacked bones of thousands of Parisians.
Parts of it also used to be a mine, and here is a well they used as a water source.
You think this is an average cute Parisian apartment building, but directly below these houses are bone-filled Catacombs.
Well … we are sightseeing so why not snap a pic?
Yeah, it was cool.
