Un domaine chargé d'histoire et un parc magnifique surtout en automne...

Visite très agréable d'une maison"presque" encore habitée. C'est beau, c'est intéressant.

Très beau parc manoir intéressant à être visité dommage que le prix d'entrée à 7 euros soit un peu cher juste pour voir des pièces du bas et dommage aussi qu'il n'y ai pas d'informations sur les bâtisses autour pour nous dire à quoi elles servaient a l'époque heureusement que nous sommes allés revoir la guide pour lui demander et qui nous as bien renseigné merci à elle

Très belle visite. Y compris le parc. Troc et puces nous font découvrir les habitats d'autrefois autour de ce manoir.

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.
