The history of the Paris Catacombs

The origins of the Paris Catacombs date back to the 18th century, when the city’s cemeteries showed increasingly worrying signs of sanitation. The Parisian authorities then decided to transfer the bones from the Parisian cemeteries (Innocents cemetery, followed by 17 other cemeteries) to the old quarries of Tombe-Issoire. Used until the 15th century, these disused quarries were then developed, and the first transfers of bones took place from 1785 to 1787. All the graves, mass graves and common graves in the cemeteries of Paris were then emptied and transferred to these underground galleries, which take the name of catacombs, in reference to the Catacombs of Rome.

From 1809, the Catacombs were opened to the public, and the success was immediate. Today, nearly 550,000 tourists walk through the 1,500 meters of galleries each year. You can discover the bones of millions of unknown people, but also those of illustrious people, such as the Emperor of Austria François 1er, or Napoleon III.


Paris Catacombs

The ossuary is one of the largest ossuaries in the world, and one of the only underground ossuaries. The arrangement of the bones is made in such a way as to make wandering through the galleries easier, but it also aims to bring an educational dimension to the visit. Initially the bones were left loose in the galleries, but today they are neatly organized along the quarry walls. You will then wander through the middle of rows of shins, then two rows of skulls, or any other bones of the human body.

Along your walk, you will discover ancient and Egyptian style monuments that line the route, in the form of a hotel, a tomb, a Doric pillar.
