Headstones of the Rich and Famous
Second only to Père Lachaise cemetery in size, this graveyard is the resting place of many internationally acclaimed artists, authors and statesmen. They include singer/songwriter Serge Gainsbourg, playwrights Eugene Ionesco and Samuel Beckett, photographer Man Ray and most notably, Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre, who share the same gravesite. Rue Émile Richard divides the cemetery into two parts; the larger section is where the majority of the famous folks are buried. Be sure to pick up a laminated map at the main entrance on Boulevard Edgar Quinet to more easily navigate the cemetery.
