Ikaalinen Church

Ikaalinen, Finland

Ikaalinen Church was completed and inaugrated on 4 August 1801. Architect was Thure Wennberg and builder Salomon Köhlström (Köykkä). It is a wooden cruciform church and seats approximately 1,100 people. The altarpiece is Berndt Godenhjelm's 'Glorification of the Christ' from 1874. During the summer, Ikaalinen Church functions as a road church. The rugged belfry was built in conjunction with the renovation of the church in 1861. The first mention of the belfry is an entry from a parish meeting as early as 1752. The current belfry is the third to have been built.

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.
