Cathedral of the Annunciation

Gospić, Croatia

The Cathedral of the Annunciation of Mary was built between 1781 and 1783 in Baroque style. During the Yugoslav Wars on September 15, 1991, the church burned down: the roof and the top of the tower burned completely, while the interior of the church was damaged by fire. The reconstruction began in 1992 and ended in 1999.

On May 25, 2000, with the Bull 'Ad christifidelium spirituali' Pope John Paul II erected the Diocese of Gospić-Senj, while bringing the church to the status of cathedral.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
