The Catacombs of Paris, located directly underneath the city, houses the remains of about six million people. The catacombs have been a tourist attraction since the doors were opened to the public in and they are now part of the Paris city museum system.
Island of the Dolls: Not surprisingly, the island’s origins lie in tragedy. The story goes that the island’s only inhabitant, Don Julian Santana, found the body of a drowned child in the canal some 50 years ago. He was haunted by her death, so when he saw a doll floating by in the canal soon after, he hung it in a tree to please the girl. He hoped to both appease her tortured soul and protect the island from further evil.
