Pere La Chaise
The second most haunted place in France is the famous cementery, Pere La Chaise. As far as I can tell, this necropolis is one of the most beautiful places on earth and the art lurking in the shadows of death in this strange museum put the art in the Louvre to shame. Pere La Chaise is the most visited cementery in the world and is the final resting place of numerous famous people including Jim Morrison, Chopin, and Oscar Wilde. The cementary is named for Louis the XIV's confessor. Napoleon took the land and turned it into a cementery in 1804. Since the ground wasn't properly consecrated, Catholics couldn't bury their dead at this beautiful necropolis and for many years the cemetery was small and forgotten. At the end of 1804, only thirteen lonely graves decorated the cemetery. The cemetery began a marketing champagne shortly after this that was amazingly successful. The graves of several famous people including Moliere were transferred to the cemetery and the rest of the dead followed in droves. Since that time the number of brilliant people buried there has grown over time turning a stroll through these hallowed grounds into a small history lesson.
