Pointe Saint Mathieu

Just down the road from the Musée Mémoires 39-45 is the Pointe Saint Mathieu, which is well worth a visit as it is the site of the French naval memorial and cenotaph. This has recently been opened to the public and is situated in a typical Napoleon III coastal fort It features an impressive display of photographs of every single individual lost in battle or at sea from the late nineteenth century through to the current day. There is also a very imposing cenotaph monument which is situated adjacent to the fort itself. I thought they had done this all extremely well, in an understated but thoughtful way.
