More Pictures from the most visited Cemetery on the Planet

Pére Lachaise Cemetery is the largest cemetery in the city of Paris. There are so many graves for you to see with some famous ppl there.
There are over 1 million bodies buried there, and many more in the columbarium.

Wikipedia even talks about way more: Although some sources incorrectly estimate the number of interred as 300,000 in Pére Lachaise, according to official website of the city of Paris; to date, one million people have been buried there. Along with the stored remains in the Aux Morts ossuary, the number of human remains exceeds 2-3 million in Pére Lachaise cemetery.”

Now they have a waiting list if you ever want to get 6 feet under over there. You have to live in Paris or you have to die here – than you might have a chance.

Lots of little houses – not much bigger than a phone booth – with chairs to pray, space for flowers and a lot have nice windows at the bag.

Tomb of Ernest Caillat (1839-1899) It was designed by Hector Guimard, designer of the Paris Metro entrances. The best one on the whole grave yard!!

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
