Located on the coast, between Arromanches and Grandcamp Maisy, this vast 70 hectare site overlooks Omaha beach. It reunites the graves of 9,387 soldiers fallen in combat. The chapel, Memorial and the Walls of the Missing and garden complete the site. The Visitor Center pays homage to the courage and the skill that were required to conduct Operation Overlord and to ensure Europe's liberation, together with the utlimate sacrifice made by those who are laid to rest within this site. Visit lasts 1 hour 30 minutes.

COVID 19 information: The Chapel is closed to the public until further notice [small groups can, nevertheless, request a private use to conduct a mass].

The Flag Raising, and the Flag Lowering, are done outside of the opening hours to avoid large gathering.
