I heard there were many more entrances to the Catacombes, am I right?

That's correct but most of them are not opened to the "public". I know a few people that were smart enough to go in there and be stuck for 13 hours.... Laughing

Pere Lachaise and Montmartre cemetary are definitely worth to visit !

Also The Castle of Versailles !

Hahaha... some guy from R'n'R Voltage also told me that back in the 80's, there was a whole "underground" scene with punks and fucked up gangs that would hang out in the Catacombes, making bondage sex shows and parties. I don't know if it's true though, I tried doing a search for it, but never found anything.

I should have went to these two cemeteries. Only went to the Catacombes and Notre Dame de Paris... although we found some alchemical symbols engraved all over the cathedral:

That's pretty much true. There was (and probably still is) a life under the streets of Paris. Lots of parties, role game playing, weirdos hanging out, etc. There's hundreds of kilometers of galleries down there. An old friend of mine was a dedicated 'cataphile' (that's what catacomb goers are called) and would spend whole weekends down under. He had some fascinating and/or scary stories to tell. It was almost like a secret society, you had to know the right people to get down there. It can be risky too, as you can get lost easily, there's a lot of water, some very narrow/low galleries, etc. If you do some research you can find interesting websites and stories online about cataphiles and the Paris catacombs.
