Tour of Pere Lachaise

Posted on Updated on

Maybe the best cemetery in the world
(although I have been to few of them)
Enter on the Uphill Side
and theoretially walk down to the lower entry

While in the Neighborhood:

Departing from the Metro:
There is a McDonald’s, which I don’t avoid
A Post Office
A Bank Branch
And a Found a Bakery Down a Side Street with a formidable Pan d’Epice (Spice Bread)
On the street to the cemetery, I sometimes buy flowers to leave on graves
