Our Insiders' Article

Montmartre Cemetery

Although for most people, visiting a cemetery would be an odd and somewhat morbid thing to do, you will surely think differently after visiting the Parisian cemeteries. Montmartre Cemetery is the 3rd largest cemetery in Paris after the Pere Lachaise and Montparnasse cemeteries. It is only a stone’s throw away from the busy Montmartre neighborhood and famous Moulin Rouge and Pigalle areas. It’s a perfect place for a relaxing afternoon stroll.

Making the Most of it

The best times to visit the Montmartre Cemetery are summer and fall, because that is when the trees and plants are the most beautiful. In the fall, the bright red, orange and yellow colors of the withering leaves give a magical and dreamlike twist to this already beautiful area. Although Montmartre Cemetery has a lot of highlights, including beautiful funerary art, visiting it on a gray and cold day of winter might not be the most cheerful place to be.


There are my French and International celebrities buried in the Montmartre Cemetery:

Dalida (18th division): a French superstar singer that committed suicide in 1987. Dalida’s grave is the one with the most flowers.

Hector Berlioz (20th division): a French composer best known for his masterpiece “The Fantastic Symphony”.

Jacques Offenbach (9th division): composer of the famous French Cancan tune

Edgar Degas (4th division): A French impressionist painter.

Alexandre Dumas Jr. (22nd division): author of “Lady of the Camellias”, aka “Camille”.


Emile Zola, a leading French Novelist, used to be buried here, but was transferred to the Pantheon in 1908, 6 years after his death. His cenotaph is still visible in the 19th division.

Montmartre Cemeteryis also a place where you will admire some fine funerary architecture. Don’t hesitate to leave the paved alleyways and walk on the smaller trails as some peculiar and breathtaking vaults are hidden in the heart of the divisions.


The land on which lies Montmartre Cemetery was once a quarry to extract gypsum used for construction in Paris. Because Paris needed more graveyards at the turn of the 19th century, 4 large cemeteries were created: Montmartre Cemetery was the northern one, and officially opened in 1825.

During Paris’s remodeling by Haussmann in the second half of the 19th century, engineers decided to build a bridge above the cemetery, instead of building a road through the cemetery: the Caulaincourt Bridge.


Montmartre is a superb district of Paris, bursting with life and entertainment. That’s what makes the cemetery even more interesting: it’s a quiet haven as opposed to the busy streets of Montmartre, yet it does perfectly reflect its spirit, its beauty, its life.
