"Pere Lechaise cemetery" Père Lachaise Cemetery Tip by asturnut

Père Lachaise Cemetery, Paris: 62 reviews and 90 photos

Visit Pere Lechaise, a sprawling, uniquely European cemetery. It is a fascinating site. The cemetery is cluttered with thousands of monuments, each of them a unique tribute to the deceased. Many, many famous writers, composers and musicians are buried there. To name a few: Berlioz, Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison, and Chopin. Pere Lechaise is very interesting. It would be so even if famous people weren't buried there. Stop by and have a look-see. It's free!
