Butte de Montsec

Recommended
From the top of this isolated hill (375 m), you can enjoy extensive panoramic views. To the west is the Woëvre and the Côtes de Meuse, to the north-east is the Lac de Madine and the body of water at Nonsard-Pannes. The Americans erected a monument at the summit in commemoration of the offensive of 12-16 September 1918, which ultimately enabled them to take the St-Mihiel salient and capture 15 000 prisoners. The building's columns form a rotunda, around the top of which there run the names of the American units who fought in this sector. A monumental stairway leads up to the rotunda.
