Père Lachaise Cemetery

The most famous cemetery in all of France (I think). Long a dumping ground for notable Parisians, the cobbled walks and eerie monuments were thrust into international fame in 1972 when American singer Jim Morrison was hastily buried there. It’s a must for any visit to the city of lights.
