Description

The Montmartre cemetery, officially known as the Cimitière du Nord, opened in 1825. It is the third largest necropolis in Paris, after the Père Lachaise cemetery and the Montparnasse cemetery. The Pont de Caulaincourt, a metal bridge built in 1888, spans over the 11 hectare cemetery. Full of trees (maple trees, chestnut trees, lime trees and thuja), the site is perfect for walking and is situated close to the Sacré-Coeur. The cemetery has 20,000 burial plots and among the famous people buried there includes Stendhal, Émile Zola, Gustave Moreau, Berlioz, Sacha Guitry and even Dalida, whose grave is the most visited and has the most flowers.
