  • definitely a place not to miss if you're in the district Montparnasse, very beautiful cemetery, well maintained, the ideal is to have time to visit many Liste celebrities, if not for the "presses" through soothing

  • Loved seeing Alekhine plot. Maybe a bit much for some but nice to see more than just a name. Nice and quiet. It is quite full. Man rays wife quote of unconcerned but not indifferent was nice too. Free map cards for loan available at main entrance. Staff helpful. Showed me plots. Not their job I'd suspect.
  • While there are good number of famous names buried here, I would suggest you just wander around. It's a quiet place, and there are some beautiful headstones. There are moving markers to remember individuals who died in wars past, as well as those who disappeared in the concentration camps.
  • Everybody goes to Père Lachaise, but also here you can tribute your salue to a lot of important witness of our recent and non history. Guy de Maupassant, Bartholdi, JP Sartre and Simon de Beauvoir
  • Often overlooked, but very worth visiting. A beautiful and historic place away from the more touristy locations.
  • Very interesting to walk around the cemetery and look at the old tombstones.
