As everyone is trapped at home, we are given the opportunity to explore new places from the comfort of our own homes. It is now time to explore one of the most spine-chilling places on earth, The Catacombs of Paris.

In the late eighteenth century, when major public health problems tied to the city’s cemeteries led to a decision to transfer their contents to an underground site. Paris authorities chose an easily accessible site that was, at the time, located outside the capital: the former Tombe-Issoire quarries under the Plain of Montrouge. The first evacuations were made from 1785 to 1787 and concerned the largest cemetery in Paris, the Saints-Innocents cemetery.

The site was consecrated as the ‘Paris Municipal Ossuary’ on April 7, 1786, and, from that time forward, took on the mythical name of ‘Catacombs’, in reference to the Roman catacombs, which had fascinated the public since their discovery. Starting in 1809, the Catacombs were opened to the public by appointment.
