Montmartre Cemetery - Review
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.

Montmartre Cemetery, Paris Reviews
Peaceful place to have lunch and a walk. As another review mentioned it does really feel like an open air museum rather than a cemetery with all of the beautiful sepulchers. I would dedicate at least 2 hours to visit the grounds as you will most likely stop quite frequently.
The place the great and the good come to rest... The list of French cultural names in here is long. Francois Truffaut, Jeanne Moreau are just two. Strangely beautiful and a great part of the city.
Interesting stop if you like historic cemeteries. Some lovely monuments. (( Note the place is full of feral cats so watch your step and you might notice the smell is unappealing too))
I have been to Paris many times before but I am glad I decided to come to Montmartre Cemetery in my last visit; is is actually impressive with all respect.
It feels a little odd to 'review' a cemetery, but on a nice day this is well worth an hour or so wondering around. Very peaceful, interesting tombs and resident cats too :)
