  • The cemetery is located just a few meters up the street next to the famous Moulin Rouge, so in case you are passing through this area and you are in a mood for this, it is definitely worth seeing. To ...  more »
  • Berlioz, Offenbach, Delibes, Dalida and Sax have their tomb. But more, you get a map on how to find the 'top 100', and the place offers some calm and rest after the buzzy environment.  more »
  • Cemeteries are a priority on this visit. There are so many of them and they are all so distinctive. Montmartre Cemetery is just a nice 20 minute walk from our apartment in Batignolles. I had a list of...  more »

  • It's nice for a short walk-through, but gets monotone after awhile. You feel a melancholic atmosphere walking next to the graves of people that have shaped history. Worth a short visit when you are in the area, entrance is free.
  • At this cemetery you will find lots of stray cats, some even let you pet them, did not see this at any other cemeteries. The graves itself are also very attractive.
  • 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.
  • Very impressive place! A lot of beatiful old architecture.
