September 2018 Dank einer Führung auf spanisch während meines Aufenthalts in St. Stephan habe ich folgendes aufgeschnappt: Die Kanzel befindet sich in der Mitte der Kirche, und die Rückenlehnen der Bänke lassen sich umklappen, so dass man sowohl zum Altar als auch zur Kanzel blicken kann. Die Kirche ist im Gegensatz zum katholischen Münster Unserer Lieben Frau heller und bedeutend schlichter als diese und hat mich deshalb sehr beeindruckt. Die Akustik und die Bänke waren sehr bemerkenswert, der Altarraum sehr einfach gestaltet. Fazit: Hier fühlt man sich auf Anhieb wohl.

Montparnasse Cemetery

Montparnasse Cemetery was created from three farms in 1824. Cemeteries had been banned from Paris since the closure, owing to health concerns, of the Cimetière des Innocents in 1786. Several new cemeteries outside the precincts of the capital replaced all the internal Parisian ones in the early 19th century: Montmartre Cemetery in the north, Père Lachaise Cemetery in the east, and Montparnasse Cemetery in the south. At the heart of the city, and today sitting in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, is Passy Cemetery.

Montparnasse cemetery is the burial place of many of France's intellectual and artistic elite as well as publishers and others who promoted the works of authors and artists. There are also many graves of foreigners who have made France their home, as well as monuments to police and firefighters killed in the line of duty in the city of Paris.

The cemetery is divided by Rue Émile Richard. The small section is usually referred to as the small cemetery (petit cimetière) and the large section as the big cemetery (grand cimetière).

Although Baudelaire is buried in this cemetery (division 6), there is also a cenotaph to him (between division 26 and 27). Because of the many notable people buried there, it is a highly popular tourist attraction.
