Old Testament Saints resided in Paradise...
Prior to Jesus Christ's death this place was in site of Hell ( remember the Rich man and Lazarus ) and separated by the Abyss. Once Christ died the OT Saints Ascended to Heaven. This is also where Jesus Christ spent His 3 days in the belly of the Earth in Paradise. And Paradise was just that, Paradise and it was in sight of those in Hell I would assume to show them just what it was they missed out on and to allow those who may have been tormented by those in Hell to see God's Judgement on them.
