Pere Lachaise / by Hannah Harley

3V2A5144EDITED Paris is full of amazing cemeteries. This Friday, we made it to Paris' most famous cemetery, Pere Lachaise. It's the resting place of Oscar Wilde, Delacroix, Edith Piaf, Colette, and Moliere. It follows the strict Paris requirements of being peaceful and beautiful. This is my third cemetery in three weeks, and they're all lined with grand trees, small cobblestone walk ways in between rows and rows of decorated tombs.

The sculptures are impressive creations; the busts are works of art. It's impressive how much decoration went into these grand graves.
