What to expect

You will be picked up at the train station or at your hotel and first be driven in an air-conditioned vehicle in Notre-Dame-de-Lorette in order to visit the Ring of Remembrance, the National Necropolis and the Lens'14-18 Centre for the history of war and peace.

After the First World War, the hill of Notre-Dame-de-Lorette was chosen by the French Government to receive the remains of French soldiers from over 150 cemeteries on fronts of Artois, Flanders and Belgian coast. You will discover the Roman-Byzantine Chapel and the Lantern Tower in the middle of the cemetery as well as the Ring of Remembrance, the International Memorial inaugured on 11 November 2014. This ellipse shaped monument is one of the largest memorials in the world, as it brings together 580 000 names presented in alphabetical order without distinction by nationality, thereby uniting friend and foe of yesteryear.

Standing at the foot of the hill of Notre-Dame-de-Lorette, the Lens'14-18- War and peace history center presents the Great War on the soil of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais with many pictures and video.

The last stop will be at the Hill 70 Memorial, a monument dedicated to the Canadians Corps that achieved victory at the battle of Hill 70 in August 1917.
