Explore Père Lachaise/Ménilmontant

Call it a laid-back style, or a vibe that says, "This is me" because that's what Père Lachaise/Ménilmontant are both about. Graffiti and street artists don't get chased away here, they get carte blanche to paint the town, literally. In this cool part of Paris, locals welcome visitors, ex-pats, and anyone who loves music, literature, art, and nightlife. So it makes sense that celebrated chanteuse Edith Piaf, prolific poet and playwright Oscar Wilde, and American rocker Jim Morrison rest inside its famous cemetery.
