  • I was very lucky to be able to visit for 3 consecutive Remembrance Days, and there is no calmer, more serene resting place for the proud souls who rest here. Beautifully maintained, with the purest headstones. Amazing to behold.
  • Yet another graveyard of the invaders on Italian soil. The Italy did not attack ever on Canada, nor landed in Quebec. But these Canadians decided to occupy and affect the soil of a nation now defeated and reduced to a pile of rubble.

  • A poignant place, able to keep alive the memory of that period. Unfortunately, many do not know what happened in that area during WWII. Affects the accuracy and the perfect condition of the typical Anglo-Saxon cemetery.
