Cimetière du Père-Lachaise was a cemetery and park located on the Northeast side of Paris in France, and was both the largest park and largest cemetery in the city. The Lestrange Mausoleum was located there.
In 1927, Gellert Grindelwald held a rally here deep in the Lestrange family Mausoleum. The cemetery was nearly destroyed after Grindelwald set loose magical flames which were only contained by the combined efforts of Nicolas Flamel, Porpentina Goldstein, Yusuf Kama, and Theseus and Newton Scamander.
Behind the scenes
- Judging from the map of Père-Lachaise Grindelwald hands Credence, the Lestrange Mausoleum is located where, in real life, is the mausoleum of Casimir Périer, a prominent French banker and political leader who was Prime Minister of France from 1831 to 1832.
