The greystone church of Tuulos was built probably between years 1510-1540, but the oldest part, the sacristy, was built by Sairiala estate owner Knut Posse between 1477-1485. There is a Posse family coat of arms in the northern wall of sacristy. The church may have been sanctified to St. Bridget of Sweden.

Definitely worth a visit! The church is worth seeing both inside and out. A specialty is Knut Posse's coat of arms in the end triangle of the sacristy.

This church has been my job for 46 years. That's why it is special among churches.

The construction of this medieval church began in 1478 by Knut Possen. The church is believed to have been completed in the first half of the 1500s. The church bell tower was built in 1780. The church is dedicated to Tuulos St. Birgita. This unique church is worth a visit!

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.
