At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Chills and goosebumps guaranteed…

The Paris Catacombs offer a rather fascinating exploration under the city, with an ossuary covering an area of 11,000m ².

On your visit you will explore a series of maze-like subterranean passages extending 2km. The catacombs are in fact old quarries which were used to store the bones of departed Parisians, relieving the overcrowded cemeteries of the capital, including that of Les Innocents, near Les Halles.

At 20 meters below ground (the equivalent of a 5 storey building!), venture into the labyrinthine galleries and you will see human bones and skulls, poems and a macabre but surprising masterpiece: the sculpture gallery of Port-Mahon.

The entrance to the catacombs is located on the Place Denfert-Rochereau. Explore the dark underbelly of the capital, the Catacombs are a must-see in Paris, a truly original place which is guaranteed to fascinate and chill you (note that the temperature is around 14°C)!
