Cimetière de Montparnasse
Cimetière du Montparnasse, originally known as Le cimetière du Sud, is a cemetery located in the Montparnasse area of the 14th arrondissement in Paris. After serious health problems in 1786 all cemeteries in Paris were closed for new burials and the creation of new burial grounds within the city borders was banned. As a result new cemeteries were created in the surrounding villages and in 1824 a 10 hectare large cemetery, then located on two farms and a plot of land that was owned by the Les Frères de la Charité in the village Montrouge, was opened. In 1860 the whole area surrounding the cemetery was integrated to Paris. Today it measures 19 hectares and is, after the Père-Lachaise cemetery, the second largest in the capital. Amongst the 35000 tombs you can find the last resting places of some of France's most famous intellectuals, artists and other celebrities. The graves of Charles Baudelaire, Simone de Beauvoir, Samuel Beckett, Serge Gainsbourg, Guy de Maupassant and many others can be visited here. Opening hours: March to November 8am to 6pm November to March 8am to 5.30pm Last entry 15 minutes prior to closing time.
