Square Père-Lachaise

Vintage postcard series ~ Between the cemetery’s northern wall and Avenue Gambetta Square Père-Lachaise has been renamed in honor of the French explorer Square Samuel du Champlain, who also has a lake named him in North America. Rarely visited by tourists, the park is a peaceful place to sit and plan how you’re going to spend the rest of your life in Paris.

Note that one of the views you can see the old northern entrance to the cemetery, which has been closed for many years.
