Lafayette's grave site is indeed moving. The gardener told me to come back on the 4th of July when the American Ambassador comes for a special ceremony to lay a wreath. Also the site of a mass grave of victims of the Revolution.
Each to get to on train and walk to from the station. This is a very old cemetery and one that has buried in it's walls the Marquis de Lafayette. One of the great American hero's of the American Revolution. This was a life bucket...More
While in Paris, we visited the gravesite of General Lafayette to pay respect to him. It was a very sombering moment also knowing that bodies are also buried there guillotined during the Reign of Terror. Even Lafayette's wife's mother, grandmother and sister were guillotined. Only...More
Not until recently did I fully understand the importance of the Marquis de Lafayette on America's history. We had visited his statue the last time in Paris, but after reading Hamilton and a biography on the Marquis, did I fully understand that we owe our...More
I'm not sure why so many people are commenting that this cemetery is so difficult to find - it isn't! If you follow these instructions (which are the same as the website) you will NOT have a problem. Take the metro, line 1,2,6 or 9...More

For the last several times I’ve been to Paris, I’ve searched for entry to the Picpus Cemetery. It is in the 12th Arrondisement, which may be the most French district I’ve strolled. Nevertheless, tucked away behind a convent wall is a small cemetery that contains...More
In a quiet corner of the 12th of Paris, amidst a busy neighborhood sits a cemetery that many people, especially American's don't know exists - this is one of two remaining private cemetery where General Lafayette's grave sits and the American flag has flown since...More
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make
