  • Sacred place to visit, to understand the mass destruction of humanity during wars. Peaceful place, silence is mandatory, there's a small film to watch downstairs. Don't forget to check the bones from the outside, and to go up the stairs.
  • Very nice and well maintained WWI monument. A chapel with tower that you can visit for a few and a military cemetery. It is a very visual reminder how war looks like. The military cemetery there is a last resort for 16000 french army military men killed in the WWI, however it is only 5% of the losses near Verdun itself, which was 300 000.
