A beautiful church whose oldest parts nave and chancel were built in the late Romantic style around the year 1200. In the early 14th century the chancel was demolished and replaced by a Gothic east extension. The tower was built around the year 1400. It was not as tall as the present one. The north chapel was built in 1616 and in 1621 the porch to the south was added. Soon the tower was elevated and provided with a lantern spire. The total height is an impressive 56.5 m and can be seen from a long distance.

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.
