Take a Video Tour of Paris' Largest Cemetery

The Pére Lachaise Cemetery takes up 110 acres in Paris, making it the city's largest cemetery to date. Walking through the aisles, you'll notice a few noteworthy names: Marcel Proust, Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, and Frédéric Chopin, among many others. The video above pulls you past hundreds of gravers in the village of markers in a matter of minutes, focusing in on the many sculptural details marking the cemetery's many patrons.
