Jim Morrison places in Paris

The trip to France was almost spontaneous and very interesting. Enjoying the atmosphere of small old streets, peering at every detail, relax and dream.


 


Historical places in France is endless, but there are some that are of particular importance. It's the house in Paris in which he lived, Jim Morrison, close to place de La Bastille, and the place of his burial in the cemetery of Pere-Lachaise.

On the Internet you can find a lot of pictures at home, but it is good to come to listen to the street and to feel the mystery of these places.

In this house once lived Jim Morrison. His window on the third floor on the left. Now it is home to a doctor, so in your apartment could not get.

Arriving in 1971 in Paris, he didn't know what home in Los Angeles will not return. This year (2013) Jim Morrison would have turned 70.

Goodbye, Jim, and see you, Jim.
