Located on the coast between Arromanches and Grandcamp Maisy, the cemetery of Colleville-sur-Mer is a moving site of 70 hectares overlooking Omaha Beach
It brings together the graves of 9,387 soldiers killed during the Normandy Battles. The Chapel, the Memorial and Garden of the Missing honour their memory.
The visitor center honours the courage and skills shown during the Overlord operation and the liberation of Europe, and the sacrifice of those who rest here.
Every day at 4:30pm, visitors attend the solemn and emotional ceremony of colours.
