Père Lachaise Cemetery

While we were in Paris last October, we spent a good half day exploring Père Lachaise Cemetery. I neglected to put any photos of the cemetery with my other blog posts of the trip so here they are… better late than never.

Père Lachaise was opened in 1804, covers ten acres, and contains over one million bodies.
