Skip the line tickets with audioguide - Catacombs of Paris


« "The Catacombs, which form a veritable labyrinth beneath the very heart of Paris, were created in April 1777 in the galleries of the former quarries whose stone was used to build the capital. Situated twenty metres below ground, the ossuary contains the remains of millions of Parisians, transferred there gradually between the late eighteenth and mid-nineteenth centuries as graveyards were being closed because of the risk they posed to public health. In the long maze of dark galleries and narrow passages, visitors can see a tableau of death with bones arranged in a macabre display of high Romantic taste. This unusual site movingly brings the history of the Parisian people back to life and takes visitors on a timeless journey". »

The bones from several graveyards and churches in Paris undoubtedly include the remains of many famous names from previous centuries including, amongst others, the writers François Rabelais (between 1483 and 1494 - 1553), Jean de la Fontaine (1621 - 1698) and Charles Perrault (1628 - 1703).

The Catacombs represent :

  • 20 meters deep (equivalent of a five-story building)
  • 213 steps
  • 2 kilometers long
  • a 1h15 visit with audioguide
  • a surface area of 11 000 square meters
  • 800 meters long
