The Catacombs of Paris are a maze of underground ossuaries containing the skulls and bones of several million Parisians. Known locally as Les Catacombes de Paris, this subterranean resting place rose in popularity in the late 18th century due to major public health problems.
*The Catacombs are not recommended for some disabled visitors. The site is dimly lit with a risk of falling and not wheelchair accessible. Learn more here.
**The Catacombs of Paris are a different attraction than the Archaeological Crypt (Crypte Archéologique) of Notre Dame. A combined ticket for both sites can be purchased at the Catacombs ticket window.
