Visit Jim Morrison at Père Lachaise Cemetery

James Douglas Morrison 1943 – 1971, his grave is a little obscured.

There isn’t a better place to live or die than in Paris. It’s a fitting resting place for Jim Morrison who was laid to rest in Père Lachaise cemetery in 1971, 164 years after the cemetery’s founding. The Philippe Auguste metro station on Line 2 is ideal to access Père Lachaise cemetery.

A park volunteer was selling maps at the entrance for around 2 EURO, get a map even if you’re just exploring! We explored aimlessly as well as visited some of the famous graves and the map was handy. I didn’t expect a cemetery to be one of the best things I’ve done in Paris. I highly recommend.
