Le Pere Lachaise
Pere Lachaise: Your guide to the famous cemetary!
Le Pere Lachaise is a beautifully-rendered, interactive map of one of the world’s most famous cemeteries. This is not only the resting place of many of the world’s beloved personalities, but it is the largest park in Paris. Take time to walk its graceful streets while studying centuries of fascinating grave art. Visit the site of the Commune’s last stand at the wall of the graveyard.
In addition to the clearly marked avenues and plot numbers, this map includes a list of some of the most well-known inhabitants. Search the list and tap on a name to see the location of their grave marked on the map. Then, tap on the marker to find out more about their life! If you are connected to the internet you will be linked to further online information about them through wikipedia, while you are right there in the park.
In addition, you can search for bathrooms (now there is a useful app!), and for the water fountains that allow visitors to water the flowers and plants they have brought.
This map works beautifully, even without an internet connection. Once you have downloaded it, just head for the park and enjoy!
