Notre-Dame de la Marne Monument

This historical landmark was the theater of violent battles between the 6th and 9th of September 1914. This strategic ground, which was then invaded by German general Von Kluck – who had installed his general staff on site – had to be reconquered.
After the first battle of the Marne, His Grace Marbeau, bishop of Meaux, made a vow so the city of Meaux could be spared and decided to erect a memorial at the very place where the German advance was stopped.
This religious and patriotic monument was inaugurated in 1924 and has been a pilgrimage site in memory of the “Miracle of the Marne.”
The monument is made of granite and cast iron and represents the Virgin Mary with the inscription “You will not go farther.”
