  • I'm not big on cemeteries normally but this is something else. Nestling in the heart of Montmartre this is the final resting place for some very famous Paris residents, as well as some of the wealthie...  more »
  • You can see outside this large cemetery, the entrance is at the end of the small street of Rachel; many famous characters are based here, painters, writers, Emile Zola, Sacha Guitry, Russian Dancer Nijinsky, well-known musicians etc.

  • In the heart of Paris, in the Montmartre district, this place is a return in time. Big names in the Arts, literature, of the music come together in this atmosphere of calm and contemplation. I went to try to find this perfume of yesteryear. Stops occur according to the known names and others less known and discoveries are many. The memory comes back to us and...

  • 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 :)
