Montparnasse Cemetery

An other thing I like to do when in Paris is to visit the Montparnasse cemetery.I particularly love the colors of the old fashion ceramic funeral wreaths.  

Created from three farms in 1824, the cemetery at Montparnasse was originally known as Le Cimetière du Sud. Montparnasse Cemetery (3, boulevard Edgar-Quinet; 33-1-44-10-86-50) is the eternal home of many of France's intellectual and artistic elite as well as publishers and others who promoted the works of authors and artists, holding the graves of Maupassant, Beckett, Jean Seberg,Duras and Man Ray, as well as Susan Sontag and Serge Gainsbourg.

Because of the many notable people buried there, it is a highly popular tourist attraction.

A bientôt,
