The Catacombs of Paris during the summer

A monumental ossuary

If you’ve ever been in the Denfert-Rochereau metro area, you may have seen a long line-up without knowing what it was all about. This is the entrance to the Catacombs of Paris. We are not alluding to the illegal explorations undertaken by some Urbex enthusiasts, which have been seen in some television reports.

Here we put the spotlight on an unusual activity ! The visit to the Catacombs of Paris, the largest ossuary in the world. The site is moreover divided into three distinct areas, namely the limestone quarries, the ossuary and a more educational part.

Practical information for the visit

By booking your tickets on the internet, you will avoid spending more time outdoors behind a crowd of visitors than in the catacombs themselves. Because the visit of these galleries only takes a little more than an hour, a definite advantage if you also want to enjoy the Parisian sunshine. This underground stopover is moreover rather opportune with the current weather.

While some people are rushing to the swimming pool or under the trees in the capital’s gardens, others are cooling down in this maze which is only 14° on the thermometer. Selfies lovers can rest assured, shots are allowed but without the use of a flash. It is best to come at lunchtime or after 6pm, when there are fewer visitors. On Tuesdays, the Catacombs of Paris are not open to the public.
