English Sydney Cenotaph

The Sydney Cenotaph is a heritage-listed monument located in Martin Place, in the Sydney, Australia. It was designed by Bertram Mackennal and built from 1927 to 1929 by Dorman Long & Co. It is also known as Martin Place Memorial and The Cenotaph. It is one of the oldest World War I monuments in central Sydney. It was added to the New South Wales State Heritage Register on 11 November 2009.The cenotaph takes the form of a monolithic stone block in a sepulchral shape. At its two shorter ends stand two bronze statues, a soldier and a sailor guarding the cenotaph. Words are carved into the longer faces of the cenotaph: on the southern side, facing the General Post Office, the carving reads: "To Our Glorious Dead"; on the northern side, facing Challis House, it reads: "Lest We Forget." Remembrance events are frequently held at the Cenotaph. Most importantly, it is the centre for Sydney's main Anzac and Armistice Day dawn service ceremonies, regularly drawing thousands of attendees.

Spanish Cenotafio de Sídney

El Cenotafio de Sídney (en inglés: Sydney Cenotaph)[1]​ se encuentra en Martin Place y es uno de los más antiguos monumentos de la Primera Guerra Mundial en el Distrito Central de Negocios de la ciudad de Sídney en Australia.

En el lado sur, frente a la Oficina General de Correos dice "a nuestros gloriosos muertos" y en el lado norte, frente a la Casa Challis se afirma que "Para que no olvidemos". Se utiliza de forma regular para las ceremonias, mucho más que el Monumento conmemoratativo de guerra Australiano en Canberra. El cenotafio es el centro de las ceremonias de servicios del Anzac y el Día del Armisticio, celebradas en Sídney, que cuentan regularmente con miles de asistentes.
