Cimetière du Montparnasse

They say a visit to Paris isn't complete without a walk through the Cimetière du Montparnasse. So, that was done and can now be checked off the list!

These are just a couple of photos I took in this very famous Parisian cemetery, wherein are buried some of France's most notables. Namely: Frédéric Bartholdi, sculpture of the Statue of Liberty; Simone de Beauvoir, feminist and philosopher; André Citroën, founder of France Citroën auto factories; Émile Durkheim, sociologist; Jean-Pierre Rampal, flautist; and Jean-Paul Sartre, philosopher and novelist, among others.
