Colleville American Cemetery


In the heart of Normandy landing beaches, the American cemetery of Colleville sur Mer overlooks Omaha Beach.

Unmissable during your visit to the Normandy beaches, it brings together the graves of 9,387 fallen soldiers, the chapel, the memorial and the garden of the disappeared.


Great moment of emotion: the ceremony of colors every day at 16:15 (from 16/09 to 14/04) or at 17:15 (from 15/04 to 15/09). You can then witness the Hoisting of the American Flag to the sound of a military anthem.


The visitor center pays tribute to these soldiers and their courage to carry out Operation Overlord and allow the liberation of Europe. Access to the center is free.
