World's Most Fascinating Tunnel Networks

Perhaps of all hidden architectures, nothing amazes us more than secret tunnels.

Some, like the Lizard People's tunnel under Los Angeles, promised great treasures, if only you're brave enough to burrow deeply. Others, like the booby-trapped Viet Cong Cu Chi Network, have only death and misadventure for those foolish enough to venture in.

Oobject has a nifty feature of 12 of the most interesting tunnels in the world:

Networks of secret passages and tunnels have been built on a giant scale, from components of the Maginot line to the Viet Cong Cu Chi Network.

Others perform a peacetime function, such as the half mile tunnel network H.G. Dyar built under his Washington home, as a hobby, the passageways under Disney’s Magic Kingdom or the unbelievable 5000 year old Lizard People tunnel network under Los Angeles that the L.A. Times published a diagram of during the depression.
