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.

Cimetière Père Lachaise- 20th arrondissement-reputed to be the world's most visited cemetery. Buried here: Sarah Bernhardt, Oscar Wilde, Isadora Duncan, Jim Morrison, Edith Piaf, Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Tokals.... On Boulevard de Ménilmontant. Take the Gambetta station on line 3, as it allows you to enter near the tomb of Oscar Wilde and then walk downhill to visit the rest of the cemetery.
