What travelers say:

The burial site of the bones known as the "catacombs" was built in the late eighteenth century and called the Izuvar cemetery, the formerly abandoned underground quarry dating back to the fifteenth century. For public health reasons, Closing the Holy Graves in 1780 at the request of the municipal government. By a 1777 parliamentary resolution the Mine Department was established to protect and consolidate underground buildings in Paris and to select and plan sites for the dead bones. More and more, the bones of all the cemeteries in the centre of Paris were transferred to these ancient limestone quarries "In particular, the city was organized by Mayor Ottoman, and the work of transferring the remains continued until 1860, when the construction of the city was being promoted. Since the early 19th century, the catacombs have been opened to the public, causing curiosity and attracting more and more tourists. There was a fear of the atmosphere in the cemetery being oppressive." Maybe you scared yourself. Thought it would be scary, the scary sight was just part of us. The view of death after the visit is even more different.
