I have been here at least three times and each time is another learning experience. The cemetary contains a number of persons who left a legacy of importance. One thing that may make you scratch your head is the Spray painted arrows on some grave stones pointing to Jim Morrison's Grave site. My last visit was over 10 years ago but this sacred place left a place in my memory that will remain with me forever. Some other notable persons who have made this their last resting place includes Chopin for his Music, De Lesseps who was instrumental in the construction of the Suez Canal. He also had grand plans for the building of the Panama Canal but his dreams were held in check due to the extreme complexity of the terrain where the canal was eventually built. Oscar Wilde's grave stone is quite massive compared to most 2' x 3' grave stones. It's probably at least 4' x 6' with scrawled writings founs on practically every inch of it. Seems like he had a number of female admires where they would leave their lips imprinted on the stone which if I read correctly have been cleaned off extensively. I also recall a fairly large monument there in honor of The "Holocaust" Victims. This stop will give you a chance to reflect about life and death and how others are placed in their final resting place. You can easily get here as it is right on the METRO. Highly recommend a stop here.
