Montparnasse Cemetery

Much like its larger and older sibling, Père-Lachaise, Montparnasse is a beautiful and morbidly fascinating place to wander. It is less hilly than Père-Lachaise, and closer to central Paris, so that’s nice. Its famous residents are predominantly figures of literature, with a few others thrown in to keep it interesting.

Baudelaire, Charles*
Beauvoir, Simone de
Beckett, Samuel*
Brassai*
Ionesco, Eugène*
Sartre, Jean-Paul
