Pere Lachaise Cemetery

The weather was sunny Monday so we took advantage of the little bit of sunshine and went back to the Pere Lachaise Cemetery. Lovely mums lined the entrance walk. We stopped by most of  the “famous but dead” sites.

Frederic Chopin (1810-1849) This place had the most flowers of all and we saw people bringing more remembrances as we were leaving.

Edith Piaf (1915-1963)

I took a lot of pictures of the family mausoleums. Each door is unique.

I  thought of these as Doors to Eternity.

I hope you have enjoyed the tour of Pere Lachaise Cemetery. This cemetery is the most visited cemetery in the world…according to the Internet… so I know it is true.
