On its site of Quirinus Chapel was originally a heathen shrine which the Romans later worshipped as an early Christian sanctuary. Since the 11th century the site has been consecrated to Saint Quirin and from the beginning of the 13th, services were held in the two caves of the chapel. The Gothic pilgrimage chapel, partly hewn in the rock, was erected in 1355, while the roof and the small belltowers were added afterwards, at the end of the 19th century.

Estava fechada. Não pude ver o interior e, pior, não pude rezar nela.

Small chapel surrounded by a nice small park. It is easily accessible by walking. However the chapel is closed and therefore you cant really see anything. But it still is worth a quick visit if it is on the way.

Cool little chapel hidden in the rocks. Nice cool breeze coming from inside.

Schattige kapel ingebouwd in de rots. Klein maar fijn. Wat ons het meest raakte is dat de preekstoel (rechtsboven) zowel aan de binnenkant als aan de buitenkant zit. We hebben ons laten vertellen dat de kerkdiensten ooit zo goed bezocht waren dat er mensen buiten de kerk moesten blijven staan. Toen maakte men achter de preekstoel een gat in de muur met balkonnetje. Zo kon de voorganger met één oog naar binnen en met het andere naar buiten kijken. En kon iedereen hem tegelijk horen. Iedere kerk zou zo'n kansel moeten hebben. Niet alleen naar binnen gericht, maar ook naar buiten.

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.
