The photos of this tip show the tombs of:
1) a not famous person; I took the pic because the monument is beautiful;
2) Auguste Bartholdi (1834-1904), the author of the Statue of Liberty that France gave to the USA as a gift for the centenary of their independence;
3) Camille Charles Flammarion (1842-1925), an astronomer. I took the photo thinking he was the founder of the famous French publishing house;
4) Charles Augustin de Sainte-Beuve (1804-69), a French intellectual and writer;
5) Serge Gainsbourg (born Lucien Ginzburg, 1928-91), a very famous and loved actor, director, song-writer and singer. You can read more about him here.

I didn't find any more tombs of famous people, but if you are very lucky, you can find those of Samuel Beckett, Alfred Dreyfus, Pierre Larousse, Henri Fantin-Latour, Guy de Maupassant, Tristan Tzara and many more... Good luck!!!
