    Oh, wow..
    This is amazing! I love the colour, it gives it a very special atmosphere.
    I’d be dead afraid to walk there alone, yet it looks quite peaceful.

  • Thanks Kirstine! I know exactly what you mean. It was very peaceful but I wouldn’t want to be there alone either. Maybe it’s something about catacombs & the bodies being upright? Cheers for your comment ;)
