  • Lovely monument in an ideal location on the sea...
  • One of the most poignant, impressive memorials I've seen in France. Right up there with Vimy Ridge. Carved into the mountain side it's speaks to being a integral part of Nices defiant soul's lost in the Great War.
  • In my point of view it's nothing special but Trip advisor has recommended. During journey it is nice stop.
  • One of the places where you get a lump stuck in your throat. People of France really know how to respect their history and heroes. Plus the view on the rest of th coast side is wonderful from here.
  • Carved out of the rock face.... Worth a walk to get a photo....
