Cimetière du Père-Lachaise

 Of the twenty cemeteries in Paris, Père-Lachaise is the most famous. Opened in 1804, it now has around 70,000 plots and receives some two million visitors a year from all over the world.
Over its 44 hectares and with its 5,300 trees, Père-Lachaise is also the biggest park in Paris.
Beyond its primary function, this famous Romantic-inspired necropolis, designed by Brongniart, with the passage of time has become an open-air museum and a pantheon garden.
Hundreds of famous artists, scientists and politicians are buried here and visitors can admire the many tombs built by well-known architects, adorned with statues and medallions sculpted by Bartholdi, Rude, Falguière and David d'Angers.
