    There were also a small section with soldiers KIA during the Great War. I don't know why they're buried here.

    That's all folks.
    It is a nice place to rest. Sunny, green and well look after.
    Nothing to compare with cemeteries in Normandy...it's not very big.
    It's close to the mediterranean sea...
    Thanks
