  • I left and apt by bus early in the morning, and get off at the bus stop in Lourmarin (the second one), and the road about five minutes walk to the left at the entrance of the cemetery. Going to the cemetery, where celebrities such as Camus cemetery displayed on the Bulletin Board. It is so carefully and inadvertently miss the small grave.

  • In this cemetery, which is actually in nothing apart from other cemeteries, is the tomb of the great writer and thinker is still quite difficult to find. Even if it is more or less. Fortunately, there were still four other couples looking and finally found someone. Relief because leave empty-handed is nothing. A very simple stone, hardly to read what's on it, not maintained, nor that of his wife. But you, if you like Camus as a writer and thinker, is nonetheless a small bede contaminated with cyanide. I'm happy to have been there.

  • It's a grave that attracts attention by its simplicity, its character almost abandoned. I put a lot of time before you find it. No offense to the whiners, all camusienne dimension is the elegance of this stripping and free and wild herbs which run on this headstone. It would be misjudging Camus, man, his route and his work, that of indignant naively place where it is based. His relatives have been able to respect that.
