The Montmartre Cemetery, North Cemetery officially opened its doors in 1825.

It is the third largest cemetery in Paris, after those of Père Lachaise and Montparnasse.

Its area is 11 hectares and the cemetery is spanned by the bridge Caulaincourt, metal bridge built in 1888. Very trees (maple, chestnut, lime and cedar), the place is ideal for walks and is close to the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.

The cemetery has 20 000 licenses and among the famous people buried include Stendhal, Zola, Gustave Moreau, Berlioz, Sacha Guitry or Dalida, whose grave is the most visited and has most flowers.
