The church on Hjarnø is one of the smallest churches in Denmark; it currently serves 87 parishioners. The church building appears to date from the 16th century. Although it originally lacked a bell tower, one was added in 1877 with a bell dating from 1425. Within the church, the granite baptismal font is made in the Romanesque style and dates from the 12th century. The altarpiece was carved by Jens Hiernøe in 1805. Hanging from the ceiling, there is also a model Viking ship, which was donated to the church by the Glud Museum in 1955.

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.
