Pablo Picasso's burial site opened to public

Roundup: Pop Culture & the Arts ... Movies, Documentaries and Museum Exhibits

The French château where Pablo Picasso is buried is to be opened to the public for the first time, 35 years after his death.

The Spanish artist was buried in the grounds of a château that he bought on a whim in 1958 in the village of Vauvenargues in the south of France.

Small groups of visitors will be allowed to view his final resting place, where he has lain since his death aged 91. The raised burial mound is topped with his 1933 sculpture, Femme au vase.
