In memory of aviators
Jun 2019 • Couples
This modern monument stands on the hill by the town of Etretat, in the vicinity of the church Notre Dame de la Garde. It was erected in memory of the first two aviators who attempted to fly directly from France to New York and were last seen in Etretat. Their plane disappeared somewhere during this flight.
The monument itself is beautiful, but the views from the hill are really breath-taking.
You can either walk to the top of the hill (about half an hour) or take a tourist train.

Monument Mission

A climb that needs to be done by car or other source of transport as its a long steep climb. A small chapel sits next to the monument but was closed when we were there. Wonderful far reaching views.

Pioneers of Transatlantic flight
Sep 2018 • Couples
Monument Nungesser et Coli, Étretat, France a monument to 2 pilots grand aeronautical dreams of landing a plane in front of the Statue of Liberty New York.

Their plane the L'Oiseau Blanc or white bird dissappeared en route in 1927, their fate a great mystery as Lindbergh completed the first transatlantic non stop flight a few weeks later.

The view is really nice from here. Standing on a plane of stone you see the Fallaise, the church and the sea. Nice. I quiet liked the little museum as well. Paintimgs, famous visitors and the bathing traditions of the last centuries

Tall monument with some brief history
Aug 2018 • Family
If you are visiting Les Jardins D'Etretat then you will see this next to it. I won't take long. There are some boards in English/French showing the history taking place here.

Nice walk up, peaceful surroundings
Sep 2017 • Couples
To reach this part (from the seaside), is easier compared to the other side (Falaise d'Etretat), as there are some very convenient steps. It took about 10 minutes to reach the top and we were happy with the views and explanations given on the monument.

When you are in Etretat, take a look!
Sep 2017 • Couples
This monument is located 100 meters behind the church. More interesting is the old monument next to this new one. The old monument is made of concrete in the form of an airplane. The germans destroyed it during the war, but it is interesting to read about WHY there is such a monument. Lots of respect for people in history. I am not going to spoil any of the fun. Go and find it out!

We were visiting the area with other seniors touring France on a river cruise. This was one of our stops and it was just beautiful. We had an opportunity to take great pictures of this wonderful memorial. Very simple but very moving.
