Picpus Cemetery is a private cemetery which is also the largest one in Paris. It was built on the land that was seized from the convent of the Chanoinesses de St-Augustin at the time of the French Revolution. The cemetery consists 1,306 victims who were executed in 1974 between June 14 and 27 July at the height of the Reign of Terror. On this day, only the descendants of those victims who were brutally executed are eligible to be buried here. The Picpus Cemetery is of particular interest to a lot of American visitors as it also encompasses the tomb of the Marquis de Lafayette over which you would always be able to find an American flag.
