Description:
Paris, the City of Light, also has its share of darkness. Beneath the capital, a subterranean labyrinth of former quarries holds the remains of six million Parisians, moved here after a decision in the late 18th century to close cemeteries within the city walls to protect public health.
Les Catacombes de Paris accompanies visitors through the vast maze of sombre galleries and narrow corridors where limestone was once mined, and leads them between the walls of bones and macabrely romantic compositions of this fascinating “empire of death” that is the Ossuary.
Les Catacombes de Paris is accompanied with a detailed map of the Catacombs and the Ossuary.
French version of the book published in English in 2011.
