The World of Daman Beatty

[PHOTOS] Death Visits France


These are the most ominous photos I took on my 2008 trip to France. They feature the ghoulish gargoyles which adorn Notre Dame Cathedral, plus graves from Père Lachaise Cemetery, the largest cemetery in the city of Paris. The monument covered in kisses marks the burial site of Oscar Wilde. You will also find a couple images from Brittany, France including a war memorial.

The piles of skulls and bones were taken in the The Catacombs of Paris hidden beneath the streets of Paris. These underground ossuaries hold the remains of about six million 18th century Parisians!
