|The Montparnasse Cemetery was founded in 1824 on the place that was back then a place for 3 farms.|
Montparnasse was in the late 19th century to the middle of the 20th century the place to be for the artists and writers. It is here the we find the places written about in Hemmingways books or places we find on paintings or photography from that time. It was in Montparnasse that people like Modigliani, Man Ray, Brancusi among others lived and worked so it is natural that we find the graves of many of them here. As you can see Simone de Beauvoir and Jean Paul Sartre has their final resting place here. So does Dreyfus, Samuel Becket, Zadkine, Soutine Marguerite Duras and Serge Gainsbourg as well. Picasso lived and worked close by but is not buried here.
The Cemetery is located close to the Edgar Quinet Metro Station and is open daily.
