Nov 10 is Arthur Rimbaud’s death-day. He died in the Hopital de la Conception in Marseille as the certificate above explains.

The hospital has been rebuilt so it’s not actually the same building that Rimbaud died in, but it is the same hospital and the same site. There is continuity. It is worth visiting. Rimbaud is commemorated therein.
