Some very interesting grave sites here, including the St. Saens family crypt for music lovers, and the charming film-themed stones of Henri Langlois head of the Cinematheque Francais. Dreyfuss's site is still being vandalized, which speaks to the importance of that affair in French history.

I love cemeteries and this is one of the four in Paris worth visiting. If you only have so much time you should skip this one and go for the others.

Sculptures from Brancusi, César, Niki de Saint Phalle, Laurens are among the different jewel that you can find within this cemetery. Less known than it's big brother "Le cimetierre du Père Lachaise", the montparnasse cemetary is nonetheless as rich in famous grave. Last home of many artist of the Montparnnos time, people from every continent have been buried here: Baudelaire, Brancusi, Man Ray, Cortazar, Soutine, Porfirio Diaz, Sartre, Gainsbourg, just to name a few.
One of the few green place in a buzzing neighborhood, you can enjoy an actually oddly living place dear to the heart of the local Parisian as an odd relaxing place at lunch time.. a true Parisian moment

I adore Saint sans... he's here!! good 'ol' Camile. All the time I was looking for him all I could hear was Organ No3 and sad bu@@er that I am when I found his family plot ... my eyes moistened with my own feelings of mortality what I have done and what other have who reside here.. and I am not religous either..I still gets you. Also worth visiting is the famous kissing statue in the far eastern northern corner scupted by a very famous artist....

Pick up a free guide in the little building at the main entrance and wander through this fascinating cemetery full of unique and artistic grave markers. See where Jean-Paul Sartre, Samuel Beckett, and Man Ray are buried, to name a few. I happened to be there when a British film crew was making a film which made it even more interesting. This location is easy to reach by metro.
