I have been to the Catacombs in Paris. It is an eerie experience. When descending the dark, damp stairwell under Montparnasse, the first thing I noticed was the smell. A musty, close oder that seems to seep into every crevice. Then you start to see them - bones.....bones everywhere. Skulls piled higher than ones head. Femurs stacked into fascinating geometric shapes. Walls made from the long dead. Established in 1786, they contain the remains of countless Parisians who were moved when the city was reconstructed.
