  • These are «les catacombs de Paris». From 1786 to 1859, the city of Paris transferred 6 million bodies in several overcrowded cemeteries to a massive network (186 miles) of underground tunnels. We are 100 feet below land in this photo, below even the Paris subway system. For 5 years, a manual laborer named Decure secretly sculpted this model of a Spanish prison where he had been held captive. He died in 1786 but his secret work has rendered his name immortal in the history books of #Paris. #history
