Cimetière du Montparnasse

The second largest cemetery in Paris (after Père Lachaise), the Cimitère du Montparnasse covers nearly 50 acres and contains roughly 40 000 graves. Lined with trees, the cemetery’s large alleys provide quiet grounds for a Sunday stroll that’s perfect for history lovers. Many French and foreign intellectuals and artists are buried here, including Charles Baudelaire, Jean Seberg, Serge Gainsbourg, Samuel Beckett, Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, Marguerite Duras, and Eugene Ionesco.
