Liège, the first city to have stood up with success to the invaders in 1914, was chosen in 1925 by the Fédération Internationale des Anciens Combattants for a inter-allied memorial. The monument, both civil and religious, is a tribute from the allies of the 1914-18 war to the heroic resistance of Liège and Belgium.
Built on Cointe Hill, the memorial features, within its walls, several monuments given to Liège by the allied nations. 8 countries are represented: Italy, France, Romania, Spain, Greece, Great Britain, Poland and Russia. Some of the monuments are on the outside (on the plaza), the others inside the votive tower (in its crypt and high and low rooms)
The memorial was designed by architect Joseph Smolderen, originally from Anvers.
The weekend of Pentecost, July 21st and during the Heritage Days: 2 to 6 pm
Open on request for groups.
