I think I actually like this cemetery better than Père Lachaise - more intimate, fewer people, and a serene atmosphere. Plus of course I like the resident felines. A lovely place to contemplate life.

So much history. Very different from other cemeteries. So worth a visit. The main entrance wasn’t open, but follow the signs to the other side. Ignore the mess around the entrance.

As we were staying in the Ibis Hotel in Montmartre our hotel room actually looked out onto and down onto this wonderful cemetery .
The third largest necropolis in Paris after Pere Lachaise and Montparnasse Cemetery ,opened in 1825 and officially known as Cimetière Du Nord ,it's a huge cemetery ,it's great to walk around ,there's 20.000 burial plots and it's the final resting place of some of the most famous people of the last two centuries ,most famous graves are Stendhal,Emile Zola,Gustave Moreau,Berlioz,Sacha Guitry but the most visited grave site is the grave of Dalida ,it's a great cemetery to wander around if you're in the Montmartre District,Arrondissement 18.

Initially this looked like a very old cemetery but then we discovered many Graves of many famous Paricians.
Beautifully maintained.

A very interesting place. Lots to see, quite big, and many famous people are interred here from actors to musicians.

Not as big as Pere Lachaise, but still full of the graves of the famous. Get a map to find your favorite. Mine is Dalida who is honored by a full sized statue. And this is a pretty spot.

I was going to say this was worth a visit despite being an off the beaten path attraction, then I noticed it's currently no 79 in Paris.

A popular place, with good reason. It's beautiful, peaceful, quietly spectacular, historically and architecturally varied and interesting, full of famous dead people, close to Montmartre/Pigalle but an oasis of calm compared to the hustle and bustle of them.

I'm a fan of Zola and Stendhal so it was nice to visit their final resting places (Tip = when searching for Stendhal keep your eyes peeled for Marie-Henri Beyle, his real name, which is more prominent than his pen name.)

I also liked seeing where my 'favourite' Napoleonic Marshal, Lannes', heart is buried (his body is in the Pantheon).

Maybe there's someone in there you'd like to visit?

What a wonderful place to wander around. There are many famous people interred here, including Degas, Nijinsky, Dumas, Truffaut and Louise Weber, inventor of the Can Can. Beyond the famous residents though, it is simply a beautiful, quiet place to be and to stroll around. You'll probably catch more than one glimpse of the living inhabitants of the cemetery too, it being home to a large population of tame-ish cats.

Amongst the biggest cemeteries in the city, those who are not put off by walking amidst tombs will find the walk here pleasing, with the grounds holding the graves for quite a few famous people like Andre-Marie Ampere (namesake of the ampere measure unit), Jacques Offenbach (composer), Alexandre Dumas (writer who created the Three Musketeers, whose remains were moved to the Pantheon) or Emile Zola (writer, whose remains were also moved to the Pantheon).
Guide sheets are available, hanging from the grounds map at the entrance of the cemetery.
