Hörup church was built in the 1100s and it was dedicated to St. Anna. The tower and part of the original nave walls have survived. The restoration and enlargement was made in 1848.

The most interesting detail inside is the altarpiece painted by Carl Bloch. The font dates from 1100s and the wooden crucifix from the early 1500s. The pulpit was carved in the 17th century by Jacob Kremberg.

En fin kyrka med gamla anor och med ett av Sveriges få kastell

Min barndoms kyrka börjar bli lite dåligt underhållen Är värd ett besök dess historia är värd att läsa om

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.
