St. Giles Church

Inowłódz, Poland

According to later inscription (presumably from 17th century), St. Giles Church was founded in 1082 by Władysław I Herman as thanks for birth of his son Bolesław III Wrymouth. Actually it was founded probably not later than in 1138 by Hemran's son, Bolesław III Wrymouth. The church was restored between 1924 and 1926 and thoroughly between 1936 and 1938 with raising of the tower by one storey. The restorations changed the architecture of the church.

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.
