Cimetiere du Pere Lachaise is Paris’s most prestigious cemetery and reputed to be the most visited cemetery in the world. It is set on a wooded hill overlooking the city. The land was once owned by Pere de la Chaise, Louis XIV’s confessor, but it was bought by order of Napoleon in 1803. The cemetery became so popular that the boundaries were extended six times during the 19th century. The cemetery is a veritable roll-call of the great and good who have illuminated all facets of French and Parisian life over the past 200 years or so. Here are buried celebrities such as writers Honore de Balzac, Oscar Wilde, Gertrude Stein and composer Frederic Chopin, musician Jim Morrison and actors Sarah Bernhardt, Yves Montand and Simone Signoret and many more. The oldest residents date back to the 1100s.
