The Montparnasse Cemetery is an absolutely massive above ground cemetery, filled with all sorts of crypts and stone sarcophagi. If you're in the area and enjoy cemeteries, this is definitely an impressive one to see. We just strolled through; someone who enjoys graveyards could spend...More

The cemetery was right by my hotel so I stopped by one afternoon and it was very interesting looking throughout the area, just wandering around and reading the grave stones. It was quite difficult to find specific graves, though-- I found myself checking the maps...More

A place of nature and peace in the heart of Paris, where you enjoy walking and searching graves of famous, or unknown people, and see works of art on beautiful graves.
