Cataphiles (urban cavers) taking a break in the Cabinet Minéralogique near rue de la Tombe-Issoire

Catacombs of Paris (off-limit area), about 20 meters (60 feet) underground, under Paris city center.­

This is a part of the 200 Km network of ancient tunnels not opened to the public, but regularly visited by trespassing urban cavers called "cataphiles".­ See more information in the album description.

This photo was taken using the 180mm Raynox fisheye extension.­ The barrel distorsion was later corrected in Photoshop using the Panorama-tools plugin filters.­
