When you arrive outside the little building, you have no idea how big the place actually is. You get inside, and walk down what seem to be an endless array of spiral stairs (By then, I was quite sick of them, I had just been to Notre Dame and St. Chappelle), you walk into a labyrinth of hallways filled with the bones of thousands upon thousands of bones set up in an almost grisly display of what the plague forced people to do with their dearly departed.

Experience the thrills and fears while walking in this narrow passageway. Try this yourself without anyone near you. You would get so scared, even though you know that it is a museum and that the bones, skulls, and skeletons belong to people of a few centuries before!

Ultimately, we reached an opening in the tunnel, and we saw the sign at the top of this page--which translates: "Stop! Here is the empire of the dead." The stacks of bones can be seen beyond the sign. They're arranged in some interesting ways. I won't attempt to describe to you my feeling of the Catacombs--I'll let you make up your own minds. But, one hour after entering the mass grave, we emerged to the city again through another long, winding staircase. Unexpectedly, we didn't exit the Catacombs at the same place where we had entered.
