Jim Morrison's grave in Paris/My cousin Liz has the coolest photograph that she took of his grave while in Paris,in the early 1980ies. It is Poster size,Black and White,and a beautiful work of Art. Especially cool because his grave does not exist anymore,as it once was because of people and their abuse of it! She has a beautiful documentation of history,because the drawing someone did on the grave was quite amazing,as this photo is not his original gravestone!....S.
I took this at the grave of Jim Morrison, Pere Lachaise Cemetery, Paris, France, June 1981. Just weeks before the 10th annviersary of his death on July 3,1971. This is the original headstone that was eventually stolen. You can see the outline of one of the two policeman standing guard.
Haunting Pere-Lachaise Cemetery in Paris: Most Beautiful Tombs & Walks
"Park" describes Pere-Lachaise better than "cemetery." Plan to wander this mini city crowded with the deceased and their buildings for a few hours, as you'll be mesmerized by the artistic and freaky tombs. You may feel the need to see the overrated and underwhelming grave of Jim Morrison (it was cooler pre-barricade), but find Victor Noir instead, as rubbing his bronzed penis brings good luck. You'll feel like a Paris insider if you wait to watch others awkwardly pat his package, too.
