Montparnasse Cemetery, Paris

Cemeteries can be beautiful, peaceful places to walk, meditate on life, and appreciate interesting art. One of my favorites is Cimetière du Montparnasse in Paris. It’s in the 14th arondissement, which is where we daydream about living someday. Some of the famous people buried here are Simone de Beauvoir, Susan Sontag, and Man Ray.

Here are some of my favorite photos from Montparnasse on our first visit.
