  • large well maintained cemetery, we were able to gather on the "tombs" of Dalida, Michel Berger, Fred Chichin, Michel Galabru, Emile Zola, Berlioz, Stendhal.. .we ran out of time to find easily more than celebrities, plasticised plans to the entrance you indicate the location of the burials, but I think it should be at least 3: 00 visit to not to hurry.

  • the cemetery is a blend of contrasts, and it's great for this! There is a sharp contrast between the old and new "mixed" tombs to those between the streets and manicured paths and tombs routes with vegetation within. The neglect of the cemetery personally is synonymous with beauty, helps to create a mysterious atmosphere, ideal when visited at dusk with a bit of mist)

  • After a long search we finally found access to the cemetery and were quite disappointed. Embedded in concrete and stone and green spaces, the tombs lined up. I have less than experienced but rather a place of silence and remembrance as a bleak place this cemetery. At least the tomb of Heinrich Heines was maintained and decorated with fresh roses. A small consolation in the midst of a noisy stone desert.

  • 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 :)
