Cimetière du Père-Lachaise, the largest cemetery in Paris.
About 44 hectares with more than 3.5 million visitors annually.
So it is the most visited necropolis in the world.
Every single spot have its very own story – and lot of history too.
Walk inspired by “Restlessjo” and her captivating “Monday walk” themes.
Edith Piaf with the loving nickname “The little sparrow (with the giant voice)”
Called “La Môme Piaf” too.
Perhaps the greatest female singing voice ever.?
At least one of my absolute favorite female singers.
The piano indicates a connection to the world of music.
Gilbert Bécaud a french singer, composer, pianist and actor.
Known as “Monsieur 100,000 Volts” for his energetic performances.
Jim Morrison from the cult band The Doors.
It is said that the first tombstone was stolen by a music fan.
This second one had to be looked after in several ways, do not know if it works.
It would seem striking if I walked out of the graveyard with a tombstone under my arm.
So first Wilde was buried in a rented (!) grave outside Paris.
Later when the problems were solved “moved” so the move could happen.
Then a new problem arose – created by visitors.
Oscat Wilde was so popular that both women and men kissed the tomb,
wearing strong bold red lipstick on their lips and kissing the tombstone.
Therefore, glass was placed around it – to prevent it from being damaged.
Lipstick not only destroys shirt flips, but tombstones as well.
