Père Lachaise Cemetery

When in Paris, many visitors run around like headless chicken from one attraction to another. Have ever you ever thought that there are sights where you can take it easy and to have some break? The Cemetery of Père Lachaise is such a place. It offers much to see and experience, but no hurries. If you are history lover, then this is just for you.

We have been there couple of times and the last time in 2014. Then we had with us our mascot Mimmu. Mimmu is very kind, it never complains, does not get nervous, does not require special delicacies, but is always happy and wants to go on trips with us!

Welcome to travel around the world with my music!

From Sweden we fly to France. This time I present the song presented by Joe Dassin ( 5 November 1938 – 20 August 1980) who was American-born French singer-songwriter. I do love his music. The song is in French, but no problems, because lyrics are in English and French! This song is extremely beautiful!!!

Joe Dassin – Et si tu n’existais pas ( Lyrics in English and French )

Enjoy! Next time, where to?

En español:

Cementerio del Père Lachaise

Cuando en París, muchos visitantes corren como pollos sin cabeza de una atracción a otra. ¿Alguna vez has pensado que hay lugares donde podrias tomarte las cosas con calma y descansar? El cementerio de Père Lachaise es un lugar así. Ofrece mucho que ver y experimentar, pero sin prisas. Si eres un amante de la historia, entonces esto es sólo para usted.

Hemos estado allí un par de veces y la última vez en 2014. Luego teníamos con nosotros a nuestra mascota Mimmu. MImmu es muy amable, nunca se queja, no se pone nervioso, no requiere manjares especiales, ¡pero siempre está feliz y quiere ir de viaje con nosotros!

Bienvenido a viajar alrededor del mundo con mi música!

Desde Suecia volamos a Francia. Esta vez le presento una canción presentada por Joe Dassin (5 de noviembre de 1938 – 20 de agosto de 1980), quien fue cantante francés nacido en Estados Unidos. Amo su música. La canción está en francés, pero no hay problemas, ¡porque las letras están en inglés y francés! ¡Esta canción es extremadamente hermosa!

¡Que aproveche! La próxima vez, ¿a dónde?

À Paris, de nombreux visiteurs courent comme des poulets sans tête d’une attraction à une autre.

Il offre beaucoup à voir et à expérimenter, mais rien ne presse. Si vous êtes amateur d’histoire, c’est juste pour vous.

Nous y sommes allés quelquefois et la dernière fois en 2014. Puis, nous avons eu avec nous notre mascotte Mimmu. Mimmu est très gentil, il ne se plaint jamais, ne devient pas nerveux, n’a pas besoin de délicats spéciales, mais est toujours heureux et veut partir en voyage avec nous!
Bienvenue à voyager autour du monde avec ma musique!

De Suède, nous volons vers la France. Cette fois, je présente la chanson présentée par Joe Dassin (5 novembre 1938 – 20 août 1980), auteur-compositeur-interprète français d’origine américaine. J’adore sa musique. La chanson est en français, mais aucun problème, car les paroles sont en anglais et en français! Cette chanson est extrêmement belle !!!

  2. Hello!
    It`s a graveyard full of memories of each family. In Japan, they have similar tomb shapes, but each one has its own characteristics and is wonderful.
    Have a nice day☺

      Very nice to know. Ours are very different, because our cemeteries are generally speaking quite young. This cemetery is historic. Thank you.

  3. C’est un très bon choix de visite, effectivement on se trouve au calme et à l’ombre pendant l’été. Allant d’une tombe à l’autre, c’est toute une partie de l’histoire française qui défile. Les dernières décennies étant les plus émouvantes car il s’agit de personnes que l’on a connues vivantes.

  4. Tienes toda la razón del mundo al afirmar que hay que tomarse su tiempo para visitar este cemento. Por fotos, bien logradas, dejan ver la belleza de este Campo Santo y si que se necesita unas buenas horas para abarcar todas las instalaciones.

  10. A cemetery is a place of peace and the final resting place of the many people who have gone before us. For us living, it is a place to collect our thoughts, to reflect and to meditate. This is a great post about the Père Lachaise Cemetery, Sartenada.

  14. I stayed in an Airbnb near Père Lachaise during my second time in Paris over five years ago. I visited the cemetery, and it was overwhelming with the number of famous tombstones to check out! Morbid as it sounds, cemeteries are beautiful places to visit, to see history and enjoy the tranquility outsidd of the noisy city. 😊

  16. Tu nous enseignes Paris , Matti. Je suis allé très souvent à Paris pour le travail mais le soir je ne pouvais visiter ce cimetière qui est un véritable memorial . Par contre j’ aimais boire quelque chose à une terrasse d’un café non loin du Panthéon et de la Sorbonne .
    Tes photos sont magnifiques et on peut voir les tombes d’écrivain, ( dont certains du XVII siècle), de chanteurs , d’hommes politiques , de militaires . C ‘est l’histoire de France.
    Ici à Amiens nous avons un vieux cimetière ,le cimetière de la Madeleine qui comporte aussi des célébrités dont l ‘ écrivain Jules Verne

    Merci pour la chanson du regretté Joe Dassin . Je l’ aime et ma femme janine aussi.
    Amitiés

  19. I couldn’t possibly comment on each photograph that caught my eye and stirred my interest, but it’s a wonderful survey of the place. I was especially taken with Yves Montand’s grave (I’d forgotten how much I liked him) and the bronze skeleton. That was oddly appealing!

    I agree, too many people try to fit too much into a schedule (like chickens running around). Sometimes, quality is better than quantity. I am very glad you shared these views with us. I agree with all comments – very unique and intriguing with an interesting history. I hope you and all your family are staying safe and well.

  23. I apologize for my tardiness but wanted to take my time to enjoy the pictures, the song and your writing Matti. What a glorious cemetery and very full! But this place seems to exude peace as you walked through, your little mascot, Mimmu, in tow. The music was very beautiful and stirs the soul. I am glad it had subtitles as my French from 42 years ago is very rusty and I only picked up the occasional word.

    • Hi Linda.

      Thank you for your praising comment. I glad also that you loved my music from France. I always try to find a song in which there the lyrics is in other language than English. Next time my music goes to Spain.

      Have a good day!

      • I did enjoy that post Matti – lots to see and your cute mascot. It was nice having subtitles and realizing I would not have understood many of the French words despite studying French many years … “you use it or lose it.”

  24. I feel Europian feeling from your photos.
    Here is deep culture, I think.
    Thank you very much.

  25. Preciosa entrada Matti.
    Soy de tu misma opinión, viajar despacio, saborear lo que vemos, no es una carrera, es disfrutar.
    Père Lachaise es para visitar con tranquilidad y también meditar un poco.
    Me encanta esta vuelta al pasado y a los recuerdos que tengo del lugar.
    Abrazos, querido Matti.

    • Hola Louisa.

      Qué gran alegría leer tu comentario de alabanza este domingo por la mañana. Necesitamos escuchar nuestra propia mente y organizar nuestros pensamientos en paz. Los cementerios son lugares donde es posible hacerlo.

      Abrazos y ¡Feliz domingo!

  27. An amazing and historic place. When I was scrolling through, I was wondering if I would see Morrison’s grave. It looks like many stop there.

    • Hello Amanda.

      Thank you. Morrison is and has been one of the most visited graves. According to the map, it is easy to find, but in practice it isn’t. Victor Noir is visited by females, but it is another story.

      Have a wonderful day!

  28. Thank you for sharing this tour of the cemetery. Such an interesting place with many familiar names. It reminded me of my Sunday morning walks with my father, when I was a child, when he would take me to some of the old cemeteries in London.

    • Bonjour Michel.

      Sensationnel! Merci de donner le lien et donc d’offrir la possibilité d’admirer ces magnifiques photos! Étonnamment, beaucoup d’entre eux ont été photographiés à Espoo, dans la région où je vis.

      Demain, je vais dire que Je mettrai mon blog (wordPess) en pause. Pour combien de temps, je ne sais pas. Merci d’avoir commandé mon autre blog. Je visiterai votre blog et donc j’ai la possibilité de voir vos articles. Merci beaucopu. Amitiés,
      Matti

  30. Bravo pour ce reportage très intéressant. J’ai eu l’occasion de visiter le cimetière du Père Lachaise et je l’ai trouvé magnifique. Un endroit très calme et reposant où l’on découvre des stèles intéressantes. 🌞

  32. I also love visiting cemeteries in new cities. They are places to get away from the crowd and teach so much about a country and its history and people.

  33. J’ai eu l’occasion d’aller à Paris, mais jamais visité ce cimetière où tant de célébrités reposent… Merci pour ces photos…
