Pere- Lachaise should definitely be on your list of sites to visit while in Paris. It has everything you would expect to see in Paris. Art and architecture, history, luminaries and romance. Well, romance may be a stretch but star crossed lovers Heloise and Abelard are together there. Yes, Jim Morrison is there and Oscar Wilde and many more people you have heard of or read about. But there are many more buried at Pere Lachaise. Unknown to most, their beautiful and amazing monuments and mausoleums all that remain. To be interred at Pere- Lachaise was to make a statement. There are also a number of striking memorials to the Holocaust which when taken together offer a stark reminder of Mans inhumanity to Man. So grab a map at the cemetery office and spend some time wandering through a true Paris landmark.
