2eme fois que je vais à un mariage dans ce château. Parc au top et salle de réception parfaite. Le seul hic c'est que l'allée qui y mène ne soit pas en bon état et pas éclairée

Guided tour by an enthusiast. The building is not of great exterior interest but the whole (with the outbuildings) is already rarer. The main building is alive in every sense of the word: so that you no longer know what period you are in - you might come across Beaumarchais or Joséphine de Beauharnais at the bend of a vestibule that you wouldn't be surprised . Special mention for the Empire room Needless to say, I highly recommend

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.
