Montmartre cemetery

Montmartre cemetery is the third largest necropolis in Paris, after Père Lachaise Cemetery and Montparnasse Cemetery.

I can learn history from visiting cemetery, at the same time have a good walk.

Montmartre cemetery has quite some up and down, some tombs are even under a 1888 metallic bridge. This photo below is from Un Jour de Plus à Paris.

  1. Jeanne Moreau! Such a wonderful actress. I find cemeteries like this fascinating. I visited the Recolleta in Buenos Aires once and stumbled upon the tomb where Evita Peron is laid to rest. There were red roses attached to the front wall of the tomb. Thanks for sharing these photos.

    • She was! I like the tranquility the trees the flowers in the cemeteries…, thank you, if I ever go to Buenos Aires, I will surly put Recolleta on my list.
