I spent the most amazing few hours in the pouring rain looking for dead people. What an atmospheric place to visit. Tombs packed closely together, some with broken grilles and doors partly open, trying not to slip on the wet paths. We found Nijinsky, Zola...More

I really liked seeing all the different tombstones. I found it quite fascinating. And I thought it was an extra treat to see the cats every so often. They certainly weren't friendly, but they're still really cute. And there's something really fun and ominous about...More

Love this place. We spent hours walking through it, looking at all of the graves and monuments. Strange to see all the old graves heaped up and crowded together surrounded by modern housing. What makes this one unique, I think, is that it's full of...More

Much as I liked Pere la Chaise and Montparnasse cemeteries, I found Montmartre a somewhat depressing experience both times I visited. Unlike the other two which were larger and parklike garden cemeteries, Montmartre is tightly packed and many graves overgrown and poorly upkept. The pics...More

We visited the Montmartre Cemetery as the first stop in a self-determined walking tour of Montmartre sites we were interested in (culminating at Sacre Coeur). We made the mistake of starting our walking tour later in the afternoon on a November Tuesday when the daylight...More

Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and
styles which changes from one street to another. Ride
the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the
steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy

I know this answer comes a little late. But when we visited, we met a nice woman who was feeding the cats. She is one of several people who take care of them so there is no need to worry for their wellbeing.
