Location Information

Biguglia is a small village 9 kilometres south of Bastia, which is a town and sub-prefecture of the department of Corsica, situated on the sea coast north-east of the island. The cemetery lies seven kilometres south of Bastia on Route Impériale some 275 metres west of the N193, the main Bastia-Biguglia-Ajaccio road.

Along the very busy dual carriageway there is a roundabout with signs to the "Commonwealth War Cemetery".

Visiting Information

Care needs to be taken when entering the site as access to the cemetery is via a series of external wall mounted steps. The design of this site makes wheel chair access impossible.

Historical Information

There are now 60, 1939-45 war casualties commemorated in this site.
