  • This cemetery was right next to our hotel so we wanted to walk through. There are security guards and we felt a little uncomfortable as one guard kept following us. I suppose they have had issues with...  more »
  • Again-another off the beaten tourist path of Paris. A very easy walk down the hill from Sacre Coeur brings you to this cemetery. It is NOT morbid to go here. This quaint cemetery at the base of Montma...  more »
  • Established in 1825, it is also called the North Cemetery. It was classified in Historical Monuments in 2013. The entrance is by Rachel avenue that ends in dead end in front of the cemetery. Take a plan at the entrance, it will tell you the location of the graves of personalities. This cemetery is very extensive and if you want to see it in full, it takes about 3 hours. Without a plan, it's impossible, you will lead astray you. You will see "Chapel" graves and monumental in the old part, beautiful sculptures, busts, reliefs and stained-glass windows of chapels... There are toilets. Attention to the not very stable markets in some places... For lovers of sculptures and stained glass windows, look at the selection of photos attached.

  • A really lovely place to stroll through, which might seem strange to some being a cemetery, but the aboveground tombs and cobblestone paths have so much character and history. Definitely recommend and is just down the road from Moulin Rouge so not too far out of the way.
  • An extraordinary place. From tombs of famous people, huge funereal constructions for now-unknown worthies, abandoned large and small plots, not to mention the ladies feeding the cats living there. A calm spot, very photogenic, a place to stroll quietly and reflect. A bit less touristy than Père-Lachaise as it doesn't have any non-French pop stars.
  • I liked walking through the roads inside. The thing here is: don't go if you don't like bugs nor spiderwebs.
  • Interesting graves and history right in the heart of Montmartre. de Gas is buried here with many others.
  • Very impressive place in Paris. Everyone must to see this :)
