A fine wooden church designed by Engel. Finland's largest organ is located here.

Lapua Cathedral is a fine and rather large wooden church (though not as big as one might imagine in the pictures), built in 1827. The church is one of the nine cathedrals in Finland. The round shape of the roof suggests that the church was designed by Carl Ludwig Engel.

The carpentry car in summer 2017 was With the Old Wife in Worship. Pesetettiin our Chraisu but soon began to port water ... Cars were reasonably sized ... Then I went to church to listen God's Word !! LAPUAN Cathedral is Finland the largest of the Urut. After worship there was still Church Chapels in Tapul !! Refreshed, I started driving home !!

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.
