Montmartre Cemetery may be overshadowed by its more famous counterpart, Père Lachaise, but I actually love it even more. Plenty of "celebrities" here but go for the wonderful statuary and tomb architecture. One unusual feature is a group of mausoleums under a section of rue...More

Yes, Pere Lachaise blah blah blah whatever... Cimetiere de Montmartre is every bit as interesting as Pere Lachaise. As an added bonus, you won't get trampled by people racing around to get pictures of all the "important" people buried here.

This is a huge cemetery with incredibly ostentatious monuments. Graves with such size and ostentation can be excused from the 1800s, but from this era? An amazing realization that would-be Parisian Pharaohs continue to struggle to outdo each other in death. Legitimately important French history...More
