This cemetery is beautifully maintained by the Canadian government. The headstones have the soldier's name, regiment, age, cross or Star of David, and a poem or special thought from a loved one. Flowering plants were planted between the headstones. This is truly a peaceful resting place.

We stopped to look up the grave of my dad’s first Cousin who was killed in the Battle of Ortona on Dec 20, 1943. I remembered him stopping off at our farm before he left for Europe. It was a very peaceful place, so well maintained, with a shelter containing a record of everyone buried there and a guest book for every visitor to sign. So many young Canadians gave their lives for us. Didn’t come up on our GPS but we were able to locate it with the help of locals.

Beautifully maintained, this cemetery is a touching place to reflect on the sacrifice of those buried here (of the 1,615 graves 1,375 are Canadian) and that lost their lives fighting for a better world at Moro River and Ortona during World War II in late 1943. The place is permanently open and may be visited anytime. A must visit if you are in the area.

Immaculately maintained and extraordinarily peaceful ground for those who gave their all for us. Went with the father-in-law who’s father fought there and survived, paying homage to his dad’s young friends who made the ultimate sacrifice.

We went there to visit the grave of an uncle who had died in the Battle of Ortona. It is beautifully kept, with manicured green lawns and gorgeous flowers, which were in bloom when we were there. The smell of the mock orange was heavenly. My grandparents are long dead, but I feel certain they would be happy knowing their son was there.
