Moment de Memoire

May 5

The Bicentenary of Napoleons’ death is only two years away. On 5 May 2019, St Helena will hold its annual Moment de Memoire service at Napoleon’s Tomb in Sane Valley, to recognise the 198th anniversary of Napoleon’s passing at Longwood House on 5 May 1821.

Napoleon’s Tomb is usually viewed from a platform situated above the site. The Moment de Memoire is one of the only occasions when members of the public are allowed into the Tomb area to view the important monument where Napoleon was buried on 9 May 1821, prior to being taken back to France in 1840.
