Colleville American Cemetery

Situated in the little town of Collevile-sur-Mer (Omaha beach), and inaugurated in 1956, it is the biggest cemetery dedicated to the American soldiers who died in Normandy during the battle for freedom. The thousands of white crosses, made of Carrare marble, and facing the beach where most of them dies, is probably the one place to see during your stay. It is also in this cemetery that set the opening scene of Steven Spielberg’s 1998 movie “Saving Private Ryan” (when the “old” James Ryan comes to mourn on Captain Miller’s grave).
