Cimetière de Montmartre

Cimetiere de Montmartre is a famous cemetery located in the Montmartre neighborhood of Paris, France. It is the third largest cemetery in Paris and covers an area of approximately 11 hectares. 

The cemetery is known for its beautiful and ornate tombstones, sculptures, and monuments, which reflect the rich history and cultural heritage of the city. Many notable figures from the world of arts, literature, and music are buried here, including famous artists such as Edgar Degas and Édouard Manet, as well as writers like Stendhal and Emile Zola. 

Louise Weber, the cancan’s first star performer and painter Toulouse-Latrec’s model, is buried here. The cemetery also houses the final resting place of the renowned French singer Dalida. 

We found the cemetery a quiet place to wander and absord the atmosphere.
