Normandy American Cemetery, Colleville-sur-Mer

Highly recommended
9 386 Carrara marble crosses stand aligned in a remarkably serene setting overlooking Omaha Beach, one of the most famous Landing beaches. A commemorative monument stands in the axis of the central pathway of the Colleville-sur-Mer American Military Cemetery: the Wall of the Missing, upon which are inscribed 1 557 names. The Visitor Center pays tribute to all those who fought in WWII and in particular to the American and Allied soldiers who have been laid to rest in the cemetery.
