Cemetery of the Soldiers who laid down their lives in the line of duty. Well maintained and managed. Co located with the large cantonment of French Army.. Anybody visiting this place may also have a look at the Artillery Museum nearby

As are all places where fallen soldiers are remembered this is beautifully maintained and staffed by English speaking staff. Frequent tours are conducted for visiting groups with explanations of how some of those interred here fell in battle. Not huge in comparison to some memorial...More

This cemetery is quite small but extremely moving. We visited on Mother's Day and a tour group had left single long stemmed roses on several graves. This is a stop that is worth your time and is a very well maintained site.
