Catacombes de Paris

1 avenue du Colonel Henri Rol-Tanguy - 75014 Paris Montparnasse - Alésia
This Parisian ossuary, covering 11,000 m² of underground space is called the Catacombes in reference to the Catacombs of Rome. Visitors can access the Catacombes from Place Denfert-Rochereau. Six million bones from various Parisian cemeteries rest in the 1.7 km labyrinth of tunnels. The height of the passages is 1.8 m and the temperature is 14 degrees. The tour is not recommended for those suffering from cardiac or respiratory failure, sensitive individuals and unaccompanied children. An unusual and fascinating tour!
