This is a must for cemetary lovers as well as history buffs. Of course everyone wants to see Jim Morrison's grave, but I found a large contingent of Oscar Wilde fans at his vault, and some Moliere fans at his. Many beautiful vaults, headstones, statues and lots of other cool stuff for photographers and walkers galore! This is a very peaceful place, once you get there, with acres of walking paths. There are also a couple of cafes right outside for a refreshing drink after your visit.
