There is the most spectacular and massive mosaic depicting the N. African and Med campaigns from WWII. The detail and beauty is amazing. Even without a loved one at the... More

A truly beautifully maintained war cemetery, visiting here is an unforgettably moving experience. I spent several hours here, and left feeling a special bond with those who gave their lives so we could be free.

Visited here with friends, it was a lovely visit. The staff couldn't do enough to make our visit special. The guide was very passionate about the cemetery. It was a very sobering visit. Well worth it. The place is immaculate.

A beautiful and dignified resting place for those who served.

Close to three thousands American heroes sleep forever here. Neatly organized rows of tombs and crosses force you to stop and think, think about all who gave their lives for a better world. Quiet and moving.

Picture Arlington Cemetary in North Africa, that is this. It is actually a piece of America in Tunisia. If you get to meet the staff take the time to talk with them. They are incredibly nice and knowledgeable.
