Underground Catacombs

The notorious underground tunnels filled with thousands of skeletons are well known to give people the creeps. Just passing by those walls made of human skulls is a scary experience, feeling as if you’re being watched by a dead audience. Those who’ve been down here instantly get that eerie feeling while others explained in details how they felt something touched them even though there was no living person nearby. The catacombs were created back in the 1800s as a long-term solution for those who were already buried up in the city. Since the graveyards were already overfilled with deceased people, they relocated the ones already dead beneath Paris and buried the ones who died recently at the graveyards.
