Pere LeChase (no French spoken here) huge cemetary where famous personalities are buried including Jim Morrison, the painters Ingres & Modigliani, Oscar Wilde, and so many others. Beautiful graves. I met a woman who cleans & puts flowers on Modigliani's grave quite often. Evidently, he wasn't a very nice man to know, but quite a good artist.
It takes a long time to get through here, but if you want to see some incredible vaults and standing tombs, this is paradise.
