“Peaceful, tranquil and serene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Steps went up the hillside to the cemetery, you see a large cross and a wall and the cemetery is laid out on the gentle slope beyond. It is beautifully kept and thought provoking as you walk along the rows and see how many lost souls were hardly out of their teens.

As with all war cemeteries it was well maintained but less striking than most. Interesting to seethe war from a different perspective.

“Very interesting”

A short walk from the Hotel - well worth a visit, fantastic views from up there. Then walk to the tomb - also interesting.
