War Memorial review Rate it

Overlooking the sea from its vantage point just off quai Rauba Capeu, this imposing war memorial has been quarried into the southern face of the Colline du Château to commemorate the sacrifices made by local citizens during the two world wars. The structure itself is that of an art deco temple, the walls of which are tightly packed with the inscribed names of 'les fils morts'. It is also worth noting that, diagonally across from the memorial, are some steps leading down to a bathing area on the seaward side of the harbour wall. Far less crowded than the public beaches, these massive barrage boulders provide level sunbathing platforms with panoramic views of the bay. At the eastern end, there is a small ladder to help you scramble down into the deep, crystal clear water.
