Cimetière de Plainpalais (Plainpalais Cemetery) Review

Originally part of a 15th-century hospital complex built outside the city to isolate victims of the plague, these verdant seven acres hold the mortal remains of Jean Calvin, Simon Rath, Guillaume-Henri Dufour, William Favre, Jorge Luis Borges, and Sergio Vieira de Mello (the United Nations Special Representative killed in Iraq in 2003), as well as many of the people whose names grace street signs all over town.
