Père Lachaise Cemetery
The cemetery is the final resting place of people like Molière, Jim Morrison, Balzac, and many others. And the rich and spellbinding monuments and tombs made in their honor represent the best from artists of the late 19th century and beginning of the 20th, such as Léopold Morice, Auguste Blanqui, and Aimé-Jules Dalou. Paul Moreau-Vauthier’s monument to the victims of revolution, the Mur des Fédérés, on Avenue Gambetta is a particularly striking piece. It refers to one of the darkest periods of French history, “The Commune,” and the stones used still bear the bullet holes where 147 combatants were shot.
