LEARN: Pere Lachaise Cemetery

Where are the famous buried? 

La Chaise

As you know, I recently finished the book Before Ever After and if you’ve read my Book Review, I also mentioned that there were a lot of pocket of information and Europe Exploration in the book. — And I happen to be curious about this specific cemetery in the book’s itinerary.

Pere Lachaise happens to be the largest cemetery in Paris measuring in 110 acres of land. It is not only famous for its size but people flock here because of the famous souls buried in this place. The Tour or the visit to Pere Lachaise is actually free but based from what I’ve read, there are a lot who are offering a walking tour. (like I said, largest and a lot of famous people)

Of the famous people are Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison, Peter and Heloise Abelard, Frederic Chopin and Moliere among others. Aside from these famous individuals, it is also home to about 300,000 to 1,000,000 bodies.

Now, I know. 😀 If you happen to be in Paris, will you be visiting Pere Lachaise? And who here has? Share your experience here. ❤
