The world's most visited cemetery is also also the largest in Paris, and is located in the 20th arrondissement. The cemetery somewhat resembles a park, thanks to the architect who designed it and the multitude of artists who created incredible sculptural tombs and vaults. When it was first established by Napoleon, the cemetery was thought to be too far outside the city, so the administrators actually created a marketing plan. The remains of several famous people were transferred to Père-Lachaise, in hopes that the general population would jump at the chance to be buried next to a famous person. The plan worked, making it the largest cemetery in Paris today.This is track one of a multi-track tour, to download the entire tour, visit www.Tourcaster.com
