Located in Cimetière du Père, the largest and most well-known cemetery in Paris, Jim Morrison's grave plot is in Division 6. He was laid to rest on July 9, 1971.

The grave had no marking until French officials put a shield over it, which was stolen in 1973. A bronze bust was donated by a Croatian sculpter in 1981, but was defaced then stolen in 1988.

Many people leave empty bottles of booze and drug needles at the grave, but you won't because you're a nice person.

There are guided tours and maps available at the entrance of the cemetery.
