National necropolis where soldiers of the First World War and Italian soldiers of the Second World War are buried. Mausoleum of Admiral Latouche Tréville.
Considered as one of the most beautiful cemeteries in France, you will find a mausoleum in the shape of a pyramid, measuring nearly 8m high and surrounded by 2 sphinxes, from 1810. It houses the tomb of Vice Admiral Latouche-Tréville, commander-in-chief of the Mediterranean Naval Forces, who died on board his ship the Bucentaure in Toulon harbour on 19 August 1804.

In December 1948, the cemetery was made a National Necropolis.

An ossuary also contains the bones of 777 French soldiers.

In 1961 the remains of 975 Italian soldiers, whose bodies were not claimed by their families, who died in the south of France during the Second World War, were collected in a columbarium.
