La Pointe Du Hoc, France

The Pointe du Hoc is a clifftop located in Normandy.
It is about 30 meters tall and it overlook the sea.
During World war II it was a place and a point of attack for the Americans. It is about 7 km west of Ohamha Beach and between Omaha beach and Utah beach.
The Pointe du Hoc has a memorial. We can still see the bomb craters…Very sobering to be there!
