About Catacombs of Paris

Plan your visit to The Paris Catacombs, regarded as one of the most unique and surreal attractions of the City of Lights. Often nicknamed as the Empire of Death, the Catacombs of Paris houses the remains of more than 7 million dead Parisians, some of which date back to the 5th century. Constructed as a place to house the buried remains away from the overfilled cemeteries in the 17th century, the Paris Catacombs also has a very spine-chilling and eccentric history associated with it.
