Because of the artists and writers who have their resting places in the modest burial ground of St-Vincent, with a view of Sacré-Coeur on the hill, it's sometimes called "the most intellectual cemetery in Paris" -- but that epithet seems more apt for other graveyards. Artists Maurice Utrillo and Théopile-Alexandre Steinien were buried here, as were musician Arthur Honegger and writer Marcel Aymé. More recently, burials have included the remains of French actor Gabriello, film director Marcel Carné, and painter Eugène Boudin.
