Description

Opened in 1824, the Montparnasse cemetery, which has a surface area of 19 hectares, is the second largest necropolis in Paris, after the Père Lachaise cemetery. Full of trees, the cemetery occupies the former site of three farms, of which a listed tower belonging to one of the flour mills still stands. Among some of the famous works of art at the cemetery is 'Le Baiser' (The Kiss) by the sculptor Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957). Visitors can discover the burial places of famous men and women: Charles Baudelaire, Guy de Maupassant, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Charles Garnier. A haven of peace at the heart of one of the liveliest districts in Paris.
