City Of The Dead

Last year I walked the streets of the Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. It was the last week of October and the day was warm and partly cloudy. Just so peaceful. The tombs,graves,and memorials of so many that have gone on from the physical plane as we know it.I found myself wondering about their lives,and what ,why they chose the type of grave and stone. Also very moving was the cremation niches and the WW11 monuments.

Amazing grave yard, so many famous people buried there... I got some lovely photos. Did you go under the streets and into the catacombs ?

Yes, it was amazing.Went to see Oscar Wilde's grave ,but sadly it was being repaired. I did go to the catacombs.It is one place with such an interesting history past and present. I haven't been to the catacombs outside of Rome.Have you?
