Like it or not, the planet is covered in a networked network of caves that go deeper than you know. For every space we build above ground, nature creates its own space below ground. And most of them don’t have couches or TVS like here.
Cave systems are everywhere, from 19th-century mines to isolated caves that are a billion years old, and each one is creepy. Over the centuries, they have accumulated a vast collection of forgotten and deliberately hidden objects, including people, that fly in dust in the crushed silence and darkness.
This list is a collection of objects left behind in the cave, and the theater of bones in the eerie cave is quite shocking.
The Paris Catacombs are notorious for being one of the largest ossuaries on Earth. More than six million skeletons rest within its maze of tunnels, and the darkness doesn’t end there. The site has become both a mecca for paranormal researchers and a magnet for criminal activity. One such crime was discovered by French police in 2004, though there is zero chance they saw it coming.
Trespassers in the catacombs are common, but most take pictures and leave. In 2004, police discovered that trespassers, their number unknown, spent so much time in the catacombs that they had converted a section of it into their house. And what house would be complete without a restaurant and movie theater?
The Guardian quotes the police as having found “an underground amphitheater, with terraces cut into the rock and chairs” and “an informal restaurant and bar. There were bottles of whisky and other spirits behind a bar, tables, and chairs, a pressure cooker for making couscous.”
They went to say that “the whole thing ran off a professionally installed electricity system, and there were at least three phone lines down there.” Certainly a shocking find in the middle of a massive, off-limits boneyard.
