Graves of Marshal Ney, Marshal Massena and Generals Foy and Gobert

The photos above are from the Pere Lachaise Cemetery, situated on the Eastern side of Paris. Not difficult to get to and only four or so stops along from the City Centre (Notre Dam or Latin Quarter area). It's literally heaving with graves and monuments relevant to military history, and contains the final resting places of not only the above mentioned Ney, Foy, Massena and Gobert, but also Bessieres, Davout and others. There's also some stunning monuments dedicated to all those (including foreign nationals) who served in the French Resistance and Free French Army. Maps are available online, or at the main entrances to the cemetery grounds.
