Cimetière de Montmartre, Paris

1

Although located in the middle of the bustling tourist hotspot Montmartre, with a major boulevard running overhead, once you find your way into Montemartre Cemetery you'll discover the peace, quiet, and tranquility.

Unlike any cemetery I’ve seen before, Montmartre Cemetery is huge and crammed full of a variety of graves and tombs, each looking completely different and unique from its neighbour. It’s unbelievably rich with history, beautiful sculptures, and is the final resting place of many famous artists who lived and worked in Montmartre, one of the most artistic areas in Paris. Well-known composers, playwrights, actors, architects, inventors, and many more throughout history are buried here.
