Full of the tombstones of very many famous French people, not very large, and easy to miss if you don't look down as you pass by.Worth a look, and it's kind of pretty too.

At the entrance to the cemetery, get a map showing the location of the tombs of the famous. Enjoy the art of the tombstones and the leafy park-like atmosphere. Pay homage to the fallen from the Commune. Enjoy views of the city.

During main tourist times there are usually people selling guides at the main entrances, as the cemetery office in the western side of the site is not always open. There are map signs at strategic places about the site, but I did not realise how...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
