Fantastiska målningar. Måste ses.

Eine schöne Kirche mitten im Herzen von Fiskebäckskil. Die Kirche überragt alles und lädt zum Verweilen ein. Man kann sich das sehr aufwendig gestaltete Kirchenschiff mit Bemalungen vergleichbar eines Schiffsrumpfes anschauen. Es liegt ein sehr altes Buch zum Anschauen aus. Auf dem Friedhof sind etliche Seemänner des Ortes mit ihren Familien in großen Gruften begraben. Sehr zu empfehlen.

What an incredibly beautiful church! Wooden panelled interior with gorgeous, nautical paintings on every surface. The church sits on a hill overlooking the marina.

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.
