Beny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery, Reviers

4.9
Pay your respects at Beny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery, a conglomeration of war graves dedicated to soldiers killed during the D-Day invasions and the subsequent Battle of Normandy. The fierce combat that followed the Allied landing on the shores of France in 1944 left many dead on both sides, and this cemetery serves as the final resting place for more than 2,000 Canadian troops. Wander the quiet garden grounds designed and maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, and view the neat rows of headstones and ornate crosses stretched out before you. Take a quiet moment of reflection at one of the on-site chapels, or simply climb up to one of the viewing platforms for a better view over the cemetery and surrounding countryside. You can use the website to find a specific name or grave, if you wish. Make Beny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery a part of your Reviers vacation plans using our Reviers vacation planner.

  • Except to come to gather on a grave this cemetery is to visit by passing between two other sites. That said it is very beautiful well maintained and much calmer than the American cemetery of omoha

  • This cemetery appears in the initial and final scenes of private Ryan's rescue. It's wonderful. Large, clean, ultra well preserved, lives up to the tributes given to the soldiers who won the Battle of Normandy on the so-called D day. It is a park on a hillside facing the sea. Impeccable administration. Good parking. Free visit.
