Montmartre Cemetery

The Montmartre cemetery, opened in 1795, is the second largest cemetery in Paris. It is located in the northern part of Paris in the hollow of an old quarry which has an entrance on Avenue Rachel below Rue Caulaincourt. It occupies an area of almost 11 hectares and is shaded by approximately 750 trees – mainly maples, as well as several thuyas, chestnut trees, and lime trees. It contains, among others, the graves of such renowned artists as the conductor and composer Hector Berlioz, an icon of the French film industry, François Truffaut, a French symbolist painter Gustave Moreau, and a French naturalistic writer Émile Zola. The cemetery offers a perfect respite from the rush of the city.
