Otroligt vacker kyrka med riktigt bra gudstjänster. Begravningsplatsen är också mycket fin där den kända Fredrika Bremer med familj vilar. Kan varmt rekommendera att besöka kyrkan och dess omgivning när det väl är öppet hus. Då kyrkan ligger en bit från vägen och nära intill skogen så blir omgivningen stillsam och tilltalande.

Underbar kyrka med FANTASTISK musik och sång i en Minnesstund omkring nära och kära genom Halldoffs Begravningsbyrå

A beautiful church in a very scenic location. It's tilted tower is famous and, of course, has a charming story. But this is a perfect little church and worth anyone's time to stop and visit!

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.
