The first stone church on the Lendum site was presumably a Romanesque building built around 1200. In the end of the 16th century, it was so dilapidated that a complete reconstruction was needed. The church was restored as the current red brick building which is whitewashed except the eastern end and the southern wall. The pulpit is from 1640 and the altarpiece from 1722. The beautiful altar rails are made in wrought iron and the Roman baptismal font is in granite.

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.
