Notre Dame de Lorette is a large, beautiful, and moving French Military Cemetery. The number of graves is immense, and somewhat overwhelming. In the middle of the cemetery is the church of the same name, with beautiful stained class windows. There is also a tomb...More

This place is somewhere I think everyone should see. It really makes your understand the vast amount of lives that were lost during the ww1. Very difficult to put into words how it feels to visit a place like this.
