Facing the sea, this magnificent monument to the dead inspires contemplation and is one of the most imposing memorials in France. Built entirely from white stone, light transfigures this highly stylized building whose features include a huge open space, enormous urn and bas-reliefs punctuating the monument throughout. Should you get a bit closer, it is possible to read some 3655 names displayed in remembrance. The registration numbers of all these fallen soldiers have been placed in a reliquary inside the urn. A place to remember!
