Père Lachaise: discover an unusual park in Paris!

Located in the East of Paris, in the 20th arrondissement, parc du Père Lachaise is one of the largest in the capital, and definitely one of the most unusual. Its 5300 trees over 44 hectares could almost make you forget that you are in the middle of a cemetery! Designed by architect Alexandre Théodore Brongniart in May 1804, this green space inside the city of Paris welcomes you every day for a relaxing yet exciting stroll. Access is easy by metro (Père Lachaise station on lines 2 and 3). Will you give it a try? Take advantage of the summer weather!
