Known as Bordeaux's answer to Paris' famous Père Lachaise Cemetery, many well-known people are buried here, including Goya, Lacour, Flora Tristan and Gauguin's grandmother. Like its larger counterpart, it is also home to an amazing variety of monuments and thus offers a window onto the world of 19th-century sculpture. Its suitably peaceful atmosphere is also reminiscent of the Parisian cemetery. Cimetière de la Chartreuse is the oldest and largest burial site in Bordeaux.
