The American Cemetery at St James is an extraordinary place. The atmosphere is at the same time peaceful, and sad. I am not a spiritual person, but at this place I had a spiritual experience.

I have been here many times and I bring friends often. If you are looking to find a specific headstone, you need to go to the tourist office to find out how to locate the cross.
