The Catacombs and Notre-Dame de Paris
The city's underground catacombs are home to some six million human remains. This is why they are known as the largest tomb in the world. The Cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris, in English "our dear lady of Paris", was one of the first buildings to be equipped with flying buttresses. Therefore the gothic building is also a tourist magnet.
