The largest cemetery in Paris and reputed to be the most visit in the world. A huge and peaceful park and now home to many who have enriched French life over the past 200 years, such as Chopin, Proust and Jim Morrison.
Tucked away in a corner of northeastern Paris, the cemetery is affectionately called la cite des morts
- the city of the dead - by Parisians. With its rolling hills, thousands of trees and winding paths with carefully plotted street names, it is easy to see why Pere Lachaise is considered Paris' most hauntingly beautiful place of rest.
