I didn't know he was buried there. Every time I see something like this, I remember a song by Brassens: Supplique pour être enterré à Sete:
"Pauvres roi pharaons ! Pauvre Napoléon !
Pauvres grands disparus gisant au Panthéon !
Pauvres cendres de conséquence
Vous envierez un peu l'éternel estivant..."
It's a hilarious and utterly moving song by an extraordinary singer asking to be buried in his home town. This bit basically pities the great and the good buried in state.
