Paris Catacomb Tour, March 2013

The Empire of the Dead.  Video up.

Took us about an hour and a half to walk through the underground galleries.  When we came out we had seen enough.  Great tour.  Wish I had taken a much more powerful flashlight with sweeping beam.

Three million French excavated from cemeteries in the city and relocated here.  Ornate walls of bones were built, most folks just shoveled in behind them.

Yep fascinating, and macabre to put it mildly...
