  • Despite the plan to lend by the conservative impossible to navigate, the cemetery contains no driveway, very pity for foreigners especially, who are disappointed especially the English! Finally to see the Mayor of paris where his henchmen!

  • We had the chance to walk by the cemetery every day in our stay to Paris and very much enjoyed the architectural design. The proximity to the Eiffel Tower makes it easy to access and well worth stoppi...  more »
  • Located near the Trocadero, this small cemetery was visited to pay homage to the impressionist painters Berthe Morisot and Edouard Manet: well, the inscriptions on the tombstone were almost more readable ... .. .and just a few hundred metres from the cemetery there is the Museum Marmottan-Monet, dedicated to the Impressionists, with thousands of visitors a year and executives with stellar ratings ... ... ... Human ingratitude.

  • My favorite place visited in Paris. Originally went to simply find the grave of Claude Debussy, my favorite composer; but I found so much more! Americans like me, especially those over 40, will surely recognize many of France's most famous names here, especially those from the fields of music, art, fashion, politics and perfumery. Even some famed non-French greats may be found here, like the Shah of Iran's daughter who committed suicide when she was 31. Her grave is always adorned by live flowers. This is an especially good place to go if the day is hot and the tourists too thick. It is cool, shady, solitary and quiet here -- a feast for the eyes and soul. Many beautiful mausoleums containing lovely stained glass. The graves themselves are often works of art. Highly recommended.
  • A wonderful old cemetery where some of France's greats are buried: Edouard Manet and Berthe Morisot, both famed for their impressionist paintings. It's a fun walk around the numerous imposing headstones.
  • Wow perfect please protact me I am sripattharawade chotikul and fammily thank you
  • Very nice cemetery, alas, we did not have much time to find out more forwards but we return, the main, for me was to see the grave of Claude Debussy which I am fan. I wanted to put forward the excellent hospitality of the Lady at the entrance of the cemetery as well as the gentleman who works in maintenance, the kindness is something valuable nowadays so Kudos to them!...
