Sorry. I was not really racing to see this. Many of us stopped along the coast for a nap on the beach. I was one of those. Others may have come here on their own. For me, I always stop at this tomb. Here lies the body one of France's greatest heroes of war. Here lies the body of one of France's greatest criminals of war. Two wars, two hero/criminals. This is the tomb of General Philippe Pétain. Without him World War I may have been lost. Without him, Hitler might never have reigned over occupied France. That's way too much for me to talk about here, though.
