Story about this
Paris Catacombs or Les Catacombes originated after 1785 when the city started to tackle the problem with hygiene and with insufficient capacity of the Paris cemeteries at the same time. The Catacombs, which form a veritable labyrinth beneath the very heart of Paris, were created in the galleries of the former quarries whose stone was used to build the capital.
There are about 2 kilometers of tunnels in the catacombs and the temperature is around 14°C so it is useful to take a jacket with you.
