You can see this monument from all over, on its hilltop location. Walk up fro the Vieux Port (don't take a tour bus or one of the silly little toy trains) to appreciate the different parts of the city on the way.

Watch out for the Jardin P Puget with its waterfalls and monument to P Braille.

Further on, notice the Sherman tank, commemorating the Resistance uprising in 1944.

Panoramic views of the whole city from the top.

Church itself still bears scars of 1944 - bullet + shrapnel holes

Address: just east of Vieux Port
Directions: Follow the signs...

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
