Officially known as the Cimitière du Nord, the cemetery is said to be the third largest necropolis in Paris. Located in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, this cemetery got its name because of its isolated location, which is an abandoned gypsum quarry. This quarry used to serve as a mass burial ground during the French Revolution. It has also been the burial ground of many famous artists who used to live and work in Montmartre.

  • This was a great experience. Lots of history. Highly recommend.

  • Charming and there's a few grumpy cemetery cats hiding around the place.

  • Peace and quiet here. Some places are hard to find.

  • It's nice for a short walk-through, but gets monotone after awhile. You feel a melancholic atmosphere walking next to the graves of people that have shaped history. Worth a short visit when you are in the area, entrance is free.

  • Beautiful cemetery, home to very well known figures. Many stray cats can also be seen roaming around.
