Montparnasse Cemetery, Paris Reviews - Write a Review
Maps are just about useless. We looked for 4 famous musicians who are buried. Only found one by accident. They should make out a computerized listing and GPS. If you go, you will be more impressed with the burial structures than the maps. Im generous with the 1 star. It is a beautiful spot.
Very interesting cemetery. Hard to find the famous people that are listed on the map.
This is a beautiful cemetery in the city centre, split in two by a city road! Although nearly 200 years old, it is very well maintained. I paid my respects to the resting place of author Guy De Maupassant, whose stories I enjoyed during my school days. You can spend a few hours walking through the serene lanes here and find some solace.
A surprise to find this place. Very quiet and a lot of famous people are burried here. Graves are not that spectacular but still worth a visit when in the neighborhood.
