Pere LaChaise Cemetery in Paris, France
Père LaChaise cemetery (Cimetiere du Père LaChaise in French) is reputed to be the most visited cemetery in the world, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors a year to the grave sites of many famous artists and writers. The cemetery is a veritable roll-call of the great and good who have illuminated all facets of French and Parisian life over the past 200 years or so. Père LaChaise cememtery is also the location of five Great War memorials. Another reason for its popularity is that it is a beautiful cemetery. That may sound kind of creepy, but it really is beautiful, just look at the pictures!!! The headstones and graves are really beautiful. My favorite is Chopin's headstone. Père LaChaise cemetery has become more than just a cemetery, it has also become a main tourist attraction.
