An everlasting kiss

Over 100 years ago the sculptor Brancusi was commissioned to make a small monument dedicated to a Russian anarchist who committed suicide for love in Paris. Although her parents did not like it, to me it is the most beautiful tomb and undoubtedly the most amazing kiss ever represented. If you want to know more come in and find out about it.

A wonderful monumental cemetery

Paris has some of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world and among them, after Pere Lachaise, c 'Montparnasse. It is located in the district of the same name, near the Montparnasse Tower you can visit coming up to the highest floor from which you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the city of Paris The Eiffel Tower and all the chimneys and roofs of the houses. Continuing from the subway, past the tower you get to this monumental cemetery. A place of great and green where you can always breathe a p of peace and tranquility away from the traffic of central Paris. The French writer Guy de Maupassant buried here and also the physicist and astronomer Henri Poincaré. In this cemetery c 'the tomb of the actress Kiki de Montparnasse and the writer, philosopher and critic Jean Paul Sartre. In my opinion one of the most beautiful tombs of the Irish playwright Samuel Beckett. Susan Sontag American writer and critic who died in 2014 buried here. A very impressive place to visit and if you love these peaceful places. Of course before you start your tour better to have a map with the most important tombs and with the recommended trails to follow to avoid getting lost. Before encountering the visit to a cemetery always better to inquire about opening hours.

Un meraviglioso cimitero monumentale

Parigi possiede alcuni dei cimiteri monumentali più belli del mondo e tra questi, dopo Pere Lachaise, c'è Montparnasse. Si trova nel quartiere omonimo, vicino alla torre di Montparnasse che si può visitare arrivando fino al piano più alto da cui poter godere di una vista mozzafiato sulla città di Parigi guardando la Torre Eiffel e tutti i comignoli ed i tetti delle case.
Proseguendo dall'uscita della metro, oltre la torre si arriva a questo cimitero monumentale. Un luogo di verde grandissimo e in cui si può sempre respirare un pò di pace e di tranquillità lontano dal traffico del centro di Parigi.
Lo scrittore francese Guy de Maupassant è sepolto qui ed anche il fisico e astronomo Henri Poincarè. In quest cimitero c'è anche la tomba dell'attrice Kiki de Montparnasse e dello scrittore, filosofo e critico Jean Paul Sartre. A mio avviso una delle tombe più belle è quella del drammaturgo irlandese Samuel Beckett.
Susan Sontag scrittrice e critica statunitense morta nel 2014 è sepolta qui.
Un luogo davvero molto suggestivo e da visitare se si amano questi luoghi di pace.
Ovviamente prima di iniziare la visita è preferibile munirsi di una cartina con le tombe più importanti e con i sentieri consigliati da seguire per evitare di perdersi.
Prima di imbattersi nella visita di un cimitero è sempre meglio informarsi sugli orari di apertura.

Although it may seem strange to some,...

Although it may seem strange to some, I love walking through cemeteries. The atmosphere is calm, and some graves are real masterpieces. The cemetery of Montparnasse, as you say we are in good company: poets (Baudelaire ...), playwrights (Ionesco, Beckett, Sartre ...), sculptors (Bartholdi ...), aviators (Maryse Bastié ...), the sociologists (Baudrillard ...), politicians (Pierre Laval, Couve de Murville ...), mathematicians (Poincaré, Coriolis ...). In short, there is certainly for all "tastes". But do not forget the great unknown mass, based in this vast cemetery. It is also a delight to hear foreign tourists pronounce the names buried in Montparnasse cemetery personalities.

Même si cela peut paraître étrange à certains, j’aime beaucoup me promener dans des cimetières. L’ambiance y est calme, et certaines tombes sont de véritables chefs-d’œuvre. Au cimetière du Montparnasse, autant vous dire qu’on est en bonne compagnie : Des poètes (Baudelaire…), des dramaturges (Ionesco, Beckett, Sartre…), des sculpteurs (Bartholdi…), des aviateurs (Maryse Bastié…), des sociologues (Baudrillard…), des hommes politiques (Pierre Laval, Couve de Murville…), des mathématiciens (Poincaré, Coriolis…). Bref, il y en a assurément pour tous les « goûts ». Mais il ne faut pas oublier la grande masse des inconnus, qui reposent dans ce très vaste cimetière.
C’est aussi un délice d’entendre des touristes étrangers prononcer les noms des personnalités enterrées au cimetière du Montparnasse.

This cemetery is the most famous in the world, and very important personalities reside here. Always with respect, it is worth taking a walk among its gravestones and tombs of people see as dear as Cortzar.

Tumba de julio cortázar en montparnasse

Este cementerio es de los más famosos del mundo, y aquí residen personalidades muy importantes. Siempre desde el respeto, merece la pena dar un paseo entre sus lápidas y ver tumbas de personas tan queridas como Cortázar.

Uno de los cementerios más antiguos de París y en el que se encuentran enterrados grandes personalidades que fallecieron en su día en la capital francesa. Entre ellos, el gran Julio Cortázar, al que sus admiradores siguen dejando algunos detalles.

Located close to the district of Montparnasse train station and many streets miles pancake, the Montparnasse cemetery has undoubtedly among one of the most famous Parisian capital and fourteenth district. I must say it is also one of the largest in the city, with its great extent, and that the place offers an original and romantic walk. We especially like the mix between the old cemetery offered and surrounding buildings, modern. A mixture of original styles, not to be missed.

Situé à deux pas du quartier de la gare de Montparnasse et des nombreuses rues aux milles crêperies, le cimetière du Montparnasse compte sans aucun doute parmi l'un des plus connus de la capitale parisienne et du quatorzième arrondissement. Il faut dire qu'il s'agit également l'un des plus vastes de la ville, avec sa très grande étendue, et que le lieu offre une promenade originale et romantique à souhait. On aime notamment le mélange offert entre l'ancien cimetière et les bâtiments environnants, résolument modernes. Un mélange des styles original, à ne pas manquer.

The tomb ms mexican

In the 15th. division Montparnasse Cemetery, Paris, lie the remains of a man that marked much of the history of Mexico: Porfirio Daz. After 30 years of being president of the country, Daz resigned his post in 1911 and exhili in the City of Light where he lived his last years. When he died, his remains were buried in the church of Saint Honor d'Eylau and shortly after transferred to the cemetery of Montparnasse, this because his body could not return to Mexico. The tomb has become a must for Mexican walking Pars who adorn their last abode with bouquets and candles with the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe visit.

La tumba más mexicana

En la 15a. división del cementerio de Montparnasse, París, yacen los restos de un hombre que marcó gran parte de la historia de México: Porfirio Díaz. Luego de 30 años de ser presidente del país, Díaz renunció a su cargo en 1911 y se exhilió en la Ciudad Luz donde vivió sus últimos años.
Al morir sus restos fueron sepultados en la iglesia de Saint Honoré d'Eylau y poco después trasladados al cementerio de Montparnasse, esto debido a que fue imposible regresar su cuerpo a México. La tumba se ha vuelto un punto de visita obligado para los mexicanos que recorren París quienes adornan su última morada con ramos de flores y veladoras con la imagen de la Virgen de Guadalupe.

Where peace and tranquility envelops you

It is a quiet, peaceful, melancholy. It is a beautiful cemetery where you can find graves of famous people, but also less known but equally beautiful.

Donde la tranquilidad y el sosiego te envuelve

Se trata de un lugar tranquilo, sosegado, melancólico.
Es un cementerio precioso donde podremos encontrar tumbas de personajes famosos, pero también otras menos conocidas pero igual de preciosas.
