Cimetière du Père-Lachaise
Jim Morrison, Edith Piaf and Molière in « Père-Lachaise »: the largest park in Paris is also one of the largest cemeteries in the world.
A gigantic 'green space' of remarkable trees, 44 hectares in total, a chapel, a bird sanctuary and a few cats: nature has livened up the Père-Lachaise cemetery and its 70,000 funeral monuments.
A veritable invitation to meditation and grieving, some of the most famous people of all time rest in peace in this agreeable environment: Jean de La Fontaine, Honoré de Balzac, Oscar Wilde, Sarah Bernhardt, Edith Piaf or even Jim Morrison of the Doors.
World renowned, the cemetery welcomes celebrities and offers an exceptional panorama of the history of France and the evolution of funerary art. Gothic and antique creations, sober, curious or delirious...the tombs alone constitute an amazing spectacle.
Nature and art converse among the funeral monuments. Roam the aisles to discover the tombs that visitors have transformed into veritable cult locations.
