The Geonosian catacombs was a network of tunnels located beneath the red rocky surface of Geonosis. Every Geonosian building had a series of catacombs running for miles beneath its surface.

During the Battle of Geonosis the Separatist Council used these tunnels to escape to their ships, safeguarded by General Grievous, who slaughtered any clone troopers and Jedi unfortunate enough to enter the catacombs. It was here that Grievous earned his first trophies: lightsabers taken from the bodies of the Jedi he killed.

Archduke Poggle the Lesser sent the Geonosian warriors to hide in the catacombs after the invasion of the Grand Army of the Republic. Delta Squad infiltrated the underground tunnels and killed many of the warriors, as well as Sun Fac when he tried to escape in his starfighter. They were also used to store large assault forces for emergencies.

During the Second Battle of Geonosis, Barriss Offee and Ahsoka Tano navigated the catacombs to reach a critical area inside the Separatist's droid foundry. [1]
