To be honest with you, we actually ended up there quite in a random way, after trying to get into the Catacombes de Paris and giving up due to a massive, incredibly long queue (eventually we would then end up leaving Paris without ever visiting the catacombes despite several attempts).
Montparnasse area was not far away and we thought about having a walk around to explore the neighborood but then, reading the guide we got tempted by this ancient cemetery!
And if Montmartre cemetery had a Gothic fascinating atmosphere, Montparnasse is surely not less charming with its sculptures and bizarre decorations, illustrious tombs and large airy spaces filled with trees and flowers.

To all of these people that has filled our world with their art we wish to rest in peace in this beautiful little corner of Paris.
