There were stairs there also but not as many as you would expect. Mostly we just walked on cobblestones that were tilted to the point that you had to really pay attention where you were walking so as to not twist an ankle. All the tombs were right next to each other. Row upon row of the most beautifully designed homes of the beloved that I have ever seen.
As an artist I kept looking at all the detail and thinking I would use some of the design elements in my art. I took so many pictures here. Some were up close so that I could see the design.
It was overwhelming to see so many beautiful structures and I kept wondering who these people where and what their stories where. I did see some famous people's graves. Jim Morrison, Delacroix, Fredrick Chopin. There was a group of teenagers there looking for Jim Morrison's grave and we were all a bit lost because the map was a bit unclear but leave it to the teenagers to find it. It took some maneuvering between graves to find his so that is why we, who were staying on the path, were not being successful. This one was Fredrick Chopin's grave and as you can see, people still bring flowers to honor him.
