Here is where a group of Army Rangers scaled the cliffs and met heavy German resistance. The Americans defeated the Germans here, but not without suffering very heavy casualties.
You can walk through bunkers and underground shelters used by the Germans. There's still a lot of barbed wire around which gives this place a very authentic feel, even after all these years.
