Les Catacombs

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Clovery on April 25, 2005

From the outside, the building looks like any ordinary one. But for god sakes, who knows? After entered this building, you will plunge 30m without realizing it! It starts with a stairway leading you deeper down. Then comes the tunnel, the space getting narrower, darker, and cooler. The temperature was said to be at a constant of 11┬░C. Eventually, it will lead you to piles of bones of 5 to 6 million people covering a surface of 11 square meters. Due to the cool tunnels, it used to have water droplets dripping from the ceiling.

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!
