Craziest Places for Cat Lovers: Asnieres-sur-Seine

Le Cimetière des Animaux, Paris

The world’s largest pet cemetery can be found in Asnières-sur-Seine, a commune in the northwestern suburbs of Paris. While it may be dedicated to all creatures in the animal kingdom, with an emphasis on dogs (a statue of Barry, a famous 19th-century Saint Bernard, marks the entrance to the cemetery), the cat also looms large in the mythology of the graveyard; an array of elaborate tombstones commemorates felines both famous and anonymous. You just might encounter some alive-and-well furry critters roaming the site too. asnieres-sur-seine.fr —Emma Sloley
