Tomba dei giganti di Li Lolghi

Arzachena, Italy

Tomba dei giganti di Li Lolghi is a burial chamber which probably dates back to the period included between 1800-1200 BCE. Like the tomb of  Coddu Vecchiu, it was built in two different phases for different uses: during the Nuragic Age the original Dolmen, high a bit less than 4m and probably belonging to the Bonannaro's culture, was linked to a 10m corridor made up by stones stuck in the ground vertically. This new passageway was the new burial chamber where the dead used to be put in through a small entrance at the bottom of the Dolmen.

Worth checking out.

Not sure I would recommend it: it costs 4eur and the stones are not that special. After 10-15mins you've probably seen in. FYI: no drone flights allowed (though it is not indicated on the sign).

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.
