  • This is a place of contemplation, and hosts the graves of so many famous (and infamous) people. Some tombs are anonymous, while others tell whole stories. This is a place not to miss

  • This is a beautiful cemetery with lots of history and famous French. But so are tons of other cemeteries and I wouldn't take a detour for this. A little spooky though when you realise that people are still put to rest here.
  • Some of the most famous people are buried there. Some very nice cemetery architecture. Worth a visit if your in Paris.
