Paris: Visiting Père Lachaise Cemetery

Trevor visited Pere Lachise Cemetery which is reputed to be the world’s most visited cemetery, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors annually.

 Here is Jim Morrison’s grave. He was the American singer and songwriter with The Doors, author, and poet.

Here is the tomb of Gioachino Rossini – Italian composer. In 1887, Rossini’s remains were moved back to Florence, but the crypt that once housed them (now dedicated to his memory) still stands in Perè Lachaise.

Here is Frédéric Chopin – Polish composer. His heart is entombed within a pillar at the Holy Cross Church in Warsaw.

Dominique Vivant, Baron de Denon – French artist, writer, diplomat and archaeologist. Located close to Chopin’s grave
