PARIS, April 20 (KUNA) -- While Paris is famous for its wide variety of perfumes and fashion lines, some tourists choose to go into the more adventurous side of the city by visiting the Catacombs of Paris, where millions of human skeletons lie.
Considered one of the most bizarre museums in the world, the catacombs contain bones of up to six million people, showcased in a horror-filled atmosphere in the French capital.
The "death tunnels," that were used for mining, became a place to stock up corpses of those who died in disasters and poverty that hit the city in the 18th century, as cemeteries became overflown at the time. (end) mjz.ag
