Have visited the catacombs in Paris, and this is different in that there is far less artistic arrangement of the bones, far fewer bones, and this site is mostly in the huge cave with natural light still visible. What is amazing is the cult attraction...More

We walked to the cemetery, but I'm not sure that I would recommend walking there for others - maybe a taxi would be useful? No-one approached us, or made us feel threatened, but it was probably the edgiest route we walked along in the 5...More
