The Paris Underground Cemetery is a very small place. To visit it, you need to make an appointment in advance. Personally, I suggest that you go at noon when the sun is full, because the sun is strong at that time. It's really horrible inside. There are tens of thousands of human bones everywhere. You are so timid that you don't want to eat dinner after seeing them.
The Paris Underground Cemetery is a terrible and valuable place to visit. There are at least tens of thousands of Christian bones buried here. It's really frightening. But it's spectacular. The walls built by human skulls, the underground churches built by human bones, and the coffins of celebrities are amazing in scale.
Suggested to go to the small partners early in the morning and so on, in order to ensure the viewing effect, the library is open, the limited number of people, the humidity is very heavy, but very stuffy, a few heads have been touched shiny, the key library will also remind: do not take the bones home. I really don't understand that this is also taken by some people, but also to remind that the last section of the rotating staircase, or need some physical strength.
Where it's worth visiting, it's better to go early or the team will take a long ticket of 13 Euros English phonetic guide of 5 Euros. After entering, there was a long tunnel, and then there were piles of bones, but there was nothing to fear or taste, and the whole process was about 45 minutes.
It's right across the street from Denfert Rocherale Station on Line 4. The queue began at 2 p.m. and didn't enter until 4:30. There was more than one person in the queue. It's hot and sunny outside. It's cool to walk down the tunnel inside. It's better to wear a shawl or a thin coat. It takes half an hour to walk through the winding passage, with skeletons on both sides. It feels like a shock, because the skeleton Church in Italy has been ornate before. Compared with the pile here, it feels almost the same after seeing a few.
If you also have a curiosity, I suggest that you go to see, subway line 6 or Denfert Rochereau of lineB get off, cross the road, the entrance is not very conspicuous, but you can see people queuing, need to make an appointment at the entrance, we go at 3 p.m., and make an appointment at 5:05. Tickets are 12 euros and student tickets are 10 euros. The commentator is 5 Euros, but it can be rented without good English in Chinese. The burial site is about 300 kilometers long and only 2 kilometers open. It was originally a limestone quarry where the French who died of smallpox and cholera in the 18th and 19th centuries were buried, with about 6 million to 7 million skeletons. All walks, entrances and exits are spiral ladders, and there is no bathroom inside. If there is a need, it needs to be solved in advance. It is recommended that the older and younger visitors and the more exclusive visitors do not enter the tour. Internal personal feelings do not feel very frightening, but very shocking, wandering in the meantime, may let you temporarily forget the secular world, feel another understanding of life.
This was such a cool thing to do in Paris!! I highly recommend it to anyone looking to learn more about the dark history there. It’s eerie but so interesting!! It’s a little tricky, but definitely try to buy your tickets online before your trip. I wrote a step by step guide on how to do this on my blog. The site is entirely in French with no option for translation so it’s really hard to navigate. Send me a message if you want more info!
This is a magical and even a bit weird place. Quiet and solemn, you can see the bones that have accumulated here for centuries. Catacombesde Paris was originally an underground quarry, and the outbreak of the plague in 1786 killed a large number of Parisians. At that time, the cemetery was not enough, and the survivors were afraid of being infected with the plague. There was a phenomenon of shallow burial or even the direct abandonment of the remains without treatment. In order to solve the problem, it is used as a natural tomb for the dead. Later, many celebrities, such as Rabelais, Robespierre and Dandong, slept here. During the Paris Commune there were insurgents hiding here to escape capture. The labyrinth of underground tunnels in Paris is connected to it. During World War II, the French Resistance used the complex terrain to wage an unyielding struggle with the German occupying forces. The opening time is from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 to 17:00. Tickets: Adults 8 Euros, 13-26 years old 4 Euros, under 13 years old free.
