Four categories of actions help to maintain an entity’s sacred character (Belk et al. 1989; Hetzel 2002). Separation is the first category, as the sacred and the secular have to be clearly and permanently separated. , tangibilized contamination through objects) may preserve the experience (for example, ‘immortalizing’ a journey by pictures or bringing a souvenir home). Nevertheless, secularization of the sacred is threatening when meanings become associated with the kitsch or are decontextualized.

In this chapter, we refer to dark tourism as “the act of travel to sites associated with death, suffering and the seemingly macabre” (Stone 2006: 146). As the ultimate destination of any human 14 Ste´phanie Toussaint and Alain Decrop being, a cemetery is usually assumed to be a dark place. Therefore, the Pe`reLachaise Cemetery may be considered as a black spot (Rojek 1993; 1997). A black spot generally refers to the marker of a death site or to disaster or memorable death sites. As a cemetery, the Pe`re-Lachaise possesses the usual properties of the sacred and may be considered as a heterotopia (Foucault 1967), that is ‘a place out of space and time’, defined by its own principles and a transitional (liminal) zone within its surrounding walls.

In contrast, ‘place’ is more or less stable, absolute, occupied and provides the possibility to experience sensations related to the area. A place is thus a tried and consumed space. Debenedetti (2004: 7) defines place attachment as “an affective and positive bound between an individual (or a group) and its physical environment”. Low and Altman (1992: 5–6) maintain that “place refers to space that has been given meaning through personal, group or cultural processes”, and that place attachment “implies that the primary target of affective bonding of people is to environmental settings themselves”.
