Lots of famous and important people buried here.
Visit Jim Morrison grave if you love rock music.
Another Parisian Landmark
Beautiful cementery, definetely worth a visit!
Gorgeous and moving.
Find Modigliani's grave it's about 5 stones back from the street. Lots of flowers there.
Very calming place for walking and thinking.
Organize your trip before entering. This cemetery is like a labyrinth...the risk is to waist a great amount of time with poor results at the end. Take a map!!!!
I have been there on an autumn day with a lot of fog! There was a magic atmosphere!
Beautiful in autumn! Love this place!
Due to high Vigipirate level, most doors are closed. Eg: the one next to the Père-Lachaise metro. Porte de la Réunion is only open in the morning from 8h/8h30/9h until 9h30, then from 16h-17h30.
Go in through metro Gambetta! Have a map and stay long, its beautiful ❤️
Impressive - do not get lost ;-)
Dark graves are beautiful. Amazing photographic spot to use 50 mm lenses
Look for the grave of Jim Morrison. You will find it in number 30 in this map
Almost an open air museum.
Most definitely worth a visit when in Paris. Remembert o print out a map of the graves beforehand.
Take a photo of the map at the entrance and then plan your route. The graves you are seeking are sometimes hard to find so don't be afraid to step into the narrow paths between the plots.
So many famous graves to see here.. It's beautiful. Give yourself a few hours and have a map! It's like a village
Some really interesting graves of famous people but the divisions are confusing and its easy to get lost even with a map
Paris's main and probably most famous cemetery. You easily get lost
After crowded Paris it is nice to escape with old tombs and many trees, no rush.
Edith Piaf's grave is not alongside the road, it's a row back.
a must go site
So interesting, especially for fans of French history.
Buy a map at the beginnig, it's huge....
Have a map or you will get lost. Plans are at each entrance. A lot of famous people like Jim Morrison, Edith Piaf, Claude Debussy, Oscar Wilde, JeanJacques Rousseau. An hour visit is nothing here.
Take a photo of the map and any graves you want to visit before you start to explore - all too easy to get lost
This place is huge! Prepare to have a long walk if you want to see most famous graves
Take a camara with you and check the map of the tumbs at the entrance... amazing
Print a map before you go, saves you money.
Jim Morrison's grave on the 6ème Division. 😊
Come for Jim Morrison, but stay for Edith Piaf.
Make sure you get a map at the administration office, main entrance.
Didn't look for any celebrities -- just walked along, enjoying the peace and quiet, admiring the interesting grave marks and monuments and reading the sometimes-moving tombstones. Nice experience.
aha aha aha aha
The ghost of a French prime minister is said to yank on your clothes if you get too close. But where else will I get to meet Jim Morrison's ghost? Hotel Reco: http://bit.ly/HnWHhz
You can see the graves of many famous artists and scholars including Oscar Wilde, Marcel Proust, Georges-Pierre Seurat, Eugène Delacroix, and James Morrison.
Bring a guide!! Jim is in the 6th district!
Closes at 5:45pm
You really need a map. I didn't find a free map at the entrance, so I took a photo of someone's map with my phone. It doesn't help much, though. Do some research on the internet before you go there.
Big, big, BIG! Do not enter during a rainshower. Not much place to hide! But still, Very impressive.
Wilde's grave still visible, but unfortunately cleaned from the typical kisses and barricaded by the city hall.
At the main entrance you can get, free of charge, the 2 plans of the cemetery. Don't buy from the flower shop. Don't get only only one, as it's incomplete.
Many, many dead people here.
Oscar Wilde is behind the glass now... What a pity(((
Taken almost 4 years ago. Wilde's thomb.
A beautiful experience you should live if you go to France to show your respect to all the great people that lie there.
The world's most visited cemetery, Père Lachaise is also called La cité des morts - The city of the dead - by Parisians.
