Basilica of Saint Mary of the Chorus

San Sebastián, Spain

The Basilica of Saint Mary of Coro is a baroque Roman Catholic parish church and minor basilica completed in 1774.

The main nave consists of a large space of 48 by 33 metres divided into three naves, which in turn can be divided into 4 zones having as axis the pillars of the nave. Six pillars and the walls with pillars act as a buttress supporting the vaults. The octagonal pillars reach, up to their capitals, a height of 15 metres. The central dome is 27 metres high. At the end of the nave, on the right side, different rooms are used by the parish and other services: daily chapel, sacristy and storage rooms.

The main entrance is located between the two towers and looks as an altarpiece with its tortured figure of Saint Sebastian and the papal symbols that prove the status of minor basilica. The shield of the city crowns the building.

This is a baroque Roman Catholic church and basilica completed in 1774. The architecture is so beautiful both inside and out. There is a statue of tortured Saint Sebastian and the shield of the city is located as the crown of the building.

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.
