  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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!...
