Normandy American Cemetery



Located in the heart of the D-Day Landing beaches, the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in Colleville-sur-Mer overlooks Omaha Beach.

Not to be missed during your tour of the Normandy Landing beaches, the cemetery is home to the graves of 9,387 soldiers, fallen in combat, a chapel, a memorial and the Garden of the Missing. The visitor centre pays tribute to these soldiers and to their bravery during the successful completion of Operation Overlord which led to the liberation of Europe. Access to the centre is free of charge.

Information COVID 19 : La Chapelle demeure fermée au public jusqu’à nouvel ordre [de petits groupes peuvent, néanmoins, solliciter un usage privé pour dire une messe].

Le lever et le baisser des couleurs se font en dehors des heures d’ouverture au public, afin d’éviter les attroupements.
