Lachaise Cemetery is the largest cemetery in Paris, France. With more than 3.5 million visitors every year, it is the most visited cemetery in the world. The cemetery is located on Menemont Avenue. Among many graves, Chopin's tomb is the one with the most tourists and flowers.
One of my favorite places in Paris. This place is super inspiring and shockingly beautiful.
One of the most beautiful cemetery I have ever been to. There is so much history here and famous people.
Visiting a cemetery in Paris might seem a decidedly morbid pursuit. Père Lachaise, however, is no ordinary cemetery. The final resting place of the Arts and Sciences' most luminous souls, and a population of 1 million plus, rightfully places it as the world's most visited cemetery. Its verdant, winding paths lead to the magnificent tombs of writer Oscar Wilde, composer Frederik Chopin, playright Molière, chanteuse Edith Piaf, rocker Jim Morrison and many, many more. The size of the cemetery can be overwhelming and extremely confusing, so best pick up a map at the conservation office near the main Boulevard de Menilmontant entrance.
It is easy to get lost among the museums in Paris, with the long lines and lots of visitors. Pere-Lachaise Cemetery is a rare gem in the city. The cemetery is beautiful itself and is the final resting place to many famous people, including Chopin and Oscar Wilde. It is also the final resting place of Jim Morrison and Gertrude Stein. The cemetery also has a beautiful and haunting memorial for the Jewish and French Jewish holocaust victims. It is a great place to go for a long walk and check out the famous resting places. There are gorgeous views of the city from the top of the park.
