The 20th arrondissement is rich in history. Indeed, inhabited by people of all origins, it has its own character. It is famous for the Père-Lachaise cemetery, where numerous famous artists are buried. You can wander among the tombs of Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison, and many others. The distinctive feature of this arrondissement is the village spirit which has remained intact in the Belleville, Charonne, and Ménilmontant neighbourhoods.

The 20th arrondissement is mostly inhabited by artists, and is a real haven of peace. In the Belleville neighbourhood, you can even find a charming estate of houses. You will discover this arrondissement in a bucolic, secret atmosphere. The 20th is more a residential than tourist neighbourhood.

for lovers of leisurely walks:

In the Belleville neighbourhood you can discover different types of architecture. Why not bask in the sun in the Parc Belleville, with its numerous lakes, fountains, its impressive staircase with 1930s architecture and, on the other side of the bridge, a children's play area awaits you. You can also lose yourself in the maze of winding little lanes which characterize the whole of this arrondissement.

for lovers of culture:

The main cultural attraction of this arrondissement is… the Père Lachaise cemetery. This gigantic cemetery shelters within its walls both ordinary unknown citizens and celebrities such as Morrison, Hugo, Apollinaire, Chopin and other important names that have made their mark on history.

Afterwards, on leaving behind this visit of the past, you can stop at the Musée Edith Piaf, where her fans have brought together parts of her life (records, clothes, photos).

for lovers of shopping:

All the bars located close to the Père Lachaise Cemetery propose, if you want to quench your thirst, souvenir photos and pictures of the stars buried there.

These are the main souvenirs that you will find when you visit the 20th arrondissement of Paris.

To remember : Le Cimetière du Père-Lachaise / Le quartier de Belleville / Le Quartier de Charonne / le Quartier du Ménilmontant / Le Musée Edith Piaf.
