Montmartre Cemetery : Paris

On my last visit to Paris, I stayed with a very affordable Airbnb (~60US$/night for a studio) at the very lovely Montmartre neighborhood, filled with wonderful little bakeries, coffee places, and restaurants. Aside from the hip area, there are also a few things to see, like the La Basilique du Sacré Cœur de Montmartre with grand views overlooking Paris (where I watched the fireworks on national day), and within walking distance is the infamous Moulin Rouge cabaret street. On one of my walking tours from the Montmartre to the Moulin Rouge area I decided to go in and take a look at the Montmartre Cemetery. Although I’m not a big fan of cemeteries, there are occasionally ones with a special vibe (like the Yanaka in Tokyo). And, indeed the Monmartre proved a charming place, filled with famous names, lots of sculptures, grand tombs, greenery and flowers, and the occasional thing of interest (like the dedicated Jewish area, within a Christian cemetery).

 

Have a look…

Stop by for half an hour to tour around if you’re passing by. Look up famous folks using the signs at the entrance, if you’re into that sort of thing.
