Opened in 1820, Passy Cemetery is named after what was then a local village, and covers a little more than four acres. While it may be small, Passy has some of the city’s finest funerary sculptures and is also the final resting place of several of the city’s more well-known and interesting characters.
In fact, besides the Big Three of Montparnasse, Montmartre, and Pere-Lachaise, Passy is arguably the most interesting cemetery in Paris and within a short distance from the Eiffel Tower.
Here you will find the graves of Impressionist painters Edouard Manet and Berthe Morisot, Romantic composers Claude DeBussy and Gabriel Faure, noted French aviators Costes and Bellonte, aircraft designer Henry Farman and American silent screen star Pearl White (star of Perils of Pauline), to name a few.
