Map
20 Avenue Rachel, Paris, 75018, France

A popular destination for a stroll, this cemetery in northern Paris' Montmartre once served as home to French Revolution-era mass graves. Spruced up and formally christened "Montmartre Cemetery" in 1825, the 11-hectare space is now the final resting place of a who's who of French notables such as writers Émile Zola and Alexandre Dumas, artist Edgar Degas, and dancer Vaslav Nijinsky. Situated below street level atop an old quarry, the cemetery is well-known for its stained glass and abundance of shady maple trees. Maps are provided gratis at the cemetery's entrance, located at the end of Avenue Rachel just down the stairs from 10 Rue Caulaincourt.
