The Montparnasse cemetery stretches over 18 hectares (45 acres) and houses the tombs of several famous French people. Situated on the land of former farms, the site was chosen by Napoleon and the cemetery was created in 1824 (after Père-Lachaise and Montmartre ). It is divided up by straight walkways, two of which demarcate the Grand and the Petit cimetière. People laid to rest here include Alfred Dreyfus (of the Dreyfus Affair), the author Guy de Maupassant, Jean Seberg (the actress who starred in À Bout de Souffle ((Breathless)) among others), the poet Baudelaire, the literary couple Sartre and de Beauvoir, Samuel Beckett and Serge Gainsbourg.
