LaFayette, that brave French general who fought in the American Revolution, is buried, along with his wife, at the tiny Picpus Cemetery. Some of her family were beheaded during the French Revolution at nearby Nation and their bodies were brought here where the nuns then buried them. It is one place in Paris where the American Flag is always displayed.
Here is the tomb of LaFayette. There is a ceremony every July 4th here by the French government and the American Ambassador.
A tomb there at the Picpus Cemetery that I like the look of. No one from the guillotine is buried at this one.
A gate there.
A path leading to the cemetery. It is behind a church. In fact, the cemetery itself is hard to find being behind a wall and two tall doors and hiden if you don’t know where to look.
