Landmarks and Historic Buildings

The souvenir gardens at the Memorial de Caen began when the Israeli president planted one tree here to symbolise life in 1988. Since then, the park has been creating different gardens and commemorative sites in memory of those who fought in the Battle of Normandy. The American Garden has a peaceful fountain at its centre and plaques dedicated to all 50 states, whilst the Canadian Garden was designed by 12 architecture students from Canada. The British Garden was inaugurated in 2004 by Prince Charles and each of the different armed forces are represented  in the various sculptures and memorials in the garden. A peaceful place of reflection and contemplation.
