Père-Lachaise, founded by Napoleon in 1804, is one of the most notable cemeteries of Paris. Napoleon himself wished to be buried here, but instead ended up in more ostentatious surroundings in the Invalides. Interred here are many of the non-royal, non-military notables of Paris since the early 19th Century. Many famous expatriates (Wilde, Chopin, Stein, Morrison, etc., etc.) are also buried here. A visit to Père-Lachaise is truly a must-do in Paris!
