The Cemetery of Montmartre (French: Cimetière de Montmartre) is a cemetery in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, France, that dates to the early 19th century. Officially known as the Cimetière du Nord, it is the third largest necropolis in Paris, after the Père Lachaise Cemetery and the Montparnasse Cemetery.
In the mid-18th century, overcrowding in the cemeteries of Paris had created numerous problems, from impossibly high funeral costs to unsanitary living conditions in the surrounding neighborhoods. In the 1780s, the Cimetière des Innocents was officially closed and citizens were banned from burying corpses within the city limits of Paris. During the early 19th century, new cemeteries were constructed outside the precincts of the capital: Montmartre in the north, Père Lachaise Cemetery in the east, Passy Cemetery in the west and Montparnasse Cemetery in the south.

To get a good view of The Tomb of Dalida you have to enter the cemetery. It is located quite near a bridge so you could see the backside of it from there. But it's still worth a visit. Find out som more about the famous singer Dalida at Wikipedia and listen to her on Spotify.

I guess Dalida's tomb could be one of the best monuments ever made for celebrities.

Overall the cemetery is an interesting free attraction. I wandered for over an hour taking pictures. There are some famous people and many not so famous but obviously wealthy people all "buried" here. A little hard to actually find the entrance when you see it from above but just follow the bridge downhill and enter at the bottom.
