Closed and nothing was written on the door. Just a locked door. Even on the website it doesn’t say it’s close, they still left the opening hours as if it was open. Website is not updated and it’s really annoying.

Really enjoyed the tour, crazy to think of there being skeletons & bones of many people buried under the city. Rich in history, a bit eerie but certainly worth the visit.

it is still closed because of restauration. They couldn't tell us when it will open again. But the addressee written down in our tourist guid is incorrect too, but locals know the place if you ask them

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.
