Père Lachaise: For the Living

In Pere Lachaise Cemetery in ParisStory and photos by Linda Donahue

I have said it before and I’ll say it again here and now: I love Père Lachaise. I don’t even care about all the glitterati and literati and Illuminati buried there. I just find it to be a gloriously peaceful, happy place to wander. It’s a museum of mausoleums, where crypts and gravestones are like sculptures that compete for the title of most artistic. Stained glass windows and embellished doorways tell their own wondrous stories. I have spent many hours wandering through the cobbled pathways, and still have not seen the entirety of this sprawling cemetery. There is still much to be explored here … and so I shall.

    Great pictures Linda! Thanks for it! They look great.

    I’m a fan of the stature crying behind the fat cat. :)

    There are also guided tours with lots of different themes of the Père Lachaise. Maybe you will get one one day. Or organize yours!

    Thanks again,

    Géraldine

    I have only been there once on a cold, wet day. I need to go back and give it another go. You have inspired me!
