The Catacombs, Paris (6)

arrete! c'est ici l'empire de la mort

The Catacombs, Paris.
This part of the network of tunnels under the city holds bones moved from overcrowded cemeteries in the late 1700's. A much larger sprawl of abandoned quarries and other tunnels goes on for miles but is officially off-limits to the public.

Interesting expedition, for some reason I love skulls, and believe itīs represent lifes, no death.
