The impact visiting this site is mind blowing. The sacrifice that was made in this battle needs to be remembered. We walked the battle route and then physically understood what these soldiers must have experienced.

Very well-kept with lovely flowers. Important place to remember huge Canadian losses in 1943-1944. Well worth the visit.

Well kept by an Italian gent, who takes great pride in his work. If he is there when you visit, he will open up the church for you which was rebuilt by the Canadians after they flattened it.

We visited this cemetery with the Grande Prairie Army Cadets tour of Italy with EF Tours. Beautiful place to visit and pay respects to the fallen.
