Hjerting Church

Vejen, Denmark

Hjerting Church is Romanesque church from c. 1200. It is very small and is constructed of raw granite. It has no tower but does have a rigde turret, where the bell is. There is an interesting, and very small chancel arch leading into the chancel with its (for the size of the church) unusually large altarpiece.

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.
