An ordinary graveyard but with celebrities. If you have seen it once you do not need to go back once more.

What to say about Pere-Lachaise that hasn't already been said? I'm somewhat of a taphophile or "cemetery enthusiast," so including Pere-Lachaise in my visit to Paris was a no-brainer. Sure, we all know Jim Morrison, Chopin and Oscar Wilde are there but, depending on your...More

Didn't think that I would find a cemetery that interesting, but Pere-Lachaise proved me wrong. I recommend getting a travel guide doc before going, so you can locate the interesting sites within this location. Somewhat humbling, given the personalities and history in this place. History...More

I admit I love cemeteries, and am part of a cemetery photographing group in South Africa, so there was no way I was going to miss this one. But it more than exceeded its reputation. The cemetery is huge, shady, and beautifully maintained. It has...More

Belleville / Pere Lachaise
At the eastern edge of Paris lies Belleville / Père
Lachaise, an understated wonderland of local
treasures. Alongside the world-famous cemetery,
family-owned delicatessens and cafés nestle between
local stores and establishments. The richness of the
population here has created a little Chinatown of
Asian restaurants, and the area comes to life at night
by a funky underground scene. Façades change from one
