The neighbourhoods of Ménilmontant and Belleville are still largely working class districts that, since the middle of the 19th century, have welcomed wave after wave of immigrants. That history is reflected in a vast array of multi-ethnic restaurants, cafés and food shops, and the Belleville market is rated one of the most colourful and best-priced in Paris. There is also an increasingly lively club and bar scene in the 20th and an influx of young artists and musicians attracted by lower rents and, in particular, the village-like atmosphere of Ménilmontant. Tourists come to the area for the cemetery of Père Lachaise, the peaceful final resting place of such cultural heavyweights as Oscar Wilde and Marcel Proust. Accommodation here is well-priced and often in convenient, modern apartment buildings.
