Rendez-vous on the Montsec Hill American Memorial 55300 MONTSEC fr

An isolated outcrop, Montsec Hill is 375 metres high and situated on the River Meuse.

Nowadays topped with the American Memorial, an imposing classic circular colonnade that has at its centre a bronze relief map of St. Mihiel salient, it illustrates the region’s military operations. It was built by the Americans in 1932 from Euville limestone and carries the names of the American battalions that fought in the sector in 1918.

From the top of the hill, the view extends over Madine Lake and the banks of the Meuse River.
