St. Brice's Church

Gościęcin, Poland

The wooden St. Brice's Church in Gościęcin was built in 1661 (renovated in 1880 and dedicated to St. Brice). Formerly, in its location stood a wooden chapel from 1594. The church was funded by Marta and Marcin Wolff, the latter the owner of the sołectwo in Gościęcin. The church was built on the peripheries of the village, on a nearby hill. There, in its peripheries stands a water well (St. Brice's Well), which is given healing properties. Additionally, there is a hermitage in the area (from before 1870), presently transformed into a mountain hut.

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.
