This article takes a look at ten of the most fascinating final resting places around the world, from the largest prehistoric burial mound in Europe to the the tombs of pharaohs to the most beautiful mausoleum in the world:

I love grave sites/tombs...my father used to take me for walks in them...he was a dairy man, and liked to point out the graves of all the children who died from various pre-pasteurization threats like tuberculosis. (he was *not* a raw milk guy)
The catacombs in Paris are the spookiest place I've visited, i think.
