The Hidden Castle

July 01, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

So on the less morbid side of the Catacombs, there are also some interesting art displays that have turned up in them as well over time.

This is a miniature sculpture or carving of a castle built in a recess in the catacombs. I'm not too sure when or why this particular one was built, but I do know that a lot of the catacombs, mostly the illegal ones, are great destinations for artists to go and create some amazing works.

I was very interested in visiting these illegal catacombs, of which there are over 300 miles of below the city of Paris, but to do so safely requires quite a bit of preparation and planning of which I didn't have the time for. But I did come across one of the mysterious people that gives secret expeditions of them, so perhaps next time I'll venture a bit more off the beaten path as they say.
