Opened in 1835, Grenelle is a small cemetery (1.6 acre) tucked away in the 15th arrondissement. Size notwithstanding, Grenelle has several intriguing pieces of sculpture:

  • 2 - Architect Jean Monge (1916-1991) upright contemporary
  • 3 - Sculptor Henri Schmid (1872-1927) statue of a female angel lifting a small child skyward by Schmid
  • 4 - Sculptor Marius Rémondot (1867-1921) la Douleur (above) by Rémondot
  • 7 - Aviator Louis Coudouret (1896-1929) medallion

Located on rue Saint-Charles. Take the no. 8 metro to Lourmel. As you exit look for the small rue Varet (probably on your left), follow it around to rue Saint-Charles, turn right and the cemetery is a block up on your left at no. 174.

One entrance on rue Saint-Charles.

The conservation office is on your left as you enter the cemetery; the WC is in the rear.
