We checked opening times and arrived at 1:30 on Thursday 7 May 2015 to find it closed. There was no indication why it was closed and no indication when it might be open!

Don't be taken in by the evocative word "catacomb". There is very little to see here and it is only for those truly devoted fans of dead bodies and spooky places. To get here, walk 1km south from the Kasbah along Av 15 Octobre 1963...More

Small catacomb. Most of it is closed to the public. You will not regret not having been here. Only about two skeltons visible.
