Death in Paris 2/2. The Montmartre cemetery was built in the 19th century in an old quarry, making it below street level. We were going to visit the more popular Pere Lachaise, but that was a 40 minute metro journey away so we came here instead and found it really interesting. Top right is the grave of Impressionist artist Edgar Degas and bottom right shows one of a gang of Parisian cats who were hanging out sunning themselves. #montmartrecemetery
35 rue Ganneron. This is the only facade of the Villa des Arts that can be seen from the street. We can see a standard workshop of the famous compound dedicated to artists, from the 19th century. It is facing the Montmartre cemetery.

The Montmartre cemetery dating back to the early 19th century. There are over 20,000 plots many with elaborate burial monuments. It was incredible to see the beauty and detail of all the pieces. One of my favorites was this statue of a dog protecting his owner. #montmartrecemetery#parishistory
