Arguably one of the eeriest spots in Paris, the Paris Catacombs is an unusual, yet stunning form of art – made of human skeletons. As Paris grew into a major European hub, so did its population. So much so that the cemeteries overflowed by the 17th century. To accommodate the growing population, the dead were buried in the limestone quarries beneath the streets. Finally, when the walls around the quarries fell, the skeletons were then shifted to what we now know as the Paris Catacombs.
