Agree with other reviewers, a nice memorial to resistance fighters, and the views back toward and over Suresnes are superb. For the view of the city, which is not 360 degrees, but more like 180 degrees, go east, below the American cemetery, and you will...More

The panoramic views from Mont Valerien over Paris are stunning and as you walk down the hill towards Suresnes your view stretches as far as the eye can see with the Eiffel Tower as centre piece. The memorial itself is very touching but there is...More

This place was unknown to me until we arrived in Suresnes, but it was very sobering and moving. It is a tribute with an eternal flame to all the resistance fighters from France killed by the Nazi's. This was actually the very site where they...More

Longing place, with not much to see. Lots of people runs around the area as it is very green. Perhaps this the best way to visit it.

The 3D reliefs on the wall either side of the eternal flame are very interesting and represent different parts of France. So, interesting from an artistic as well as cultural point of view. The park around Mont-Valerien provides a nice walk and there are other...More

Mont Valerian is the single biggest memorial to the Resistance in France during World War II. Regardless of nationality it commemorates over 1,000 resistance fighters and hostages who gave their lives. Outside of Paris/France this is a little known but highly important memorial to those...More

A real unexpected find. Hearing about how Paris should have been reduced to rubble but wasn't, somehow I discovered this gem of a place that is probably little known amongst all but the French. The host, Jenna, was very accommodating, explaining that an English guided...More
