Nové Zámky Monastery

Nové Zámky, Slovakia

The Franciscan church and monastery in Nové Zámky is an important architectural building built between the years 1626-1631.

The first consecration of the church was done by Cardinal Peter Pazmáň on 24 May 1631. At first it was only a small church with shided roof and with a small monastery. At the beginning of 18th century the monastery was in the hands of Francis II Rákóczi and Mikuláš Bercsényi, who expanded the monastery partially. By the end of 19th century, according to the plans of K. Bálint the next renovation was done. The last complex reconstruction was done between 1978 and the end of the 20th century.

Today the monastery serves as the location of the town museum and as a part of the accommodations for the spiritual order of Franciscan monks.

Parkovanie je možné hneď pri kostole na veľkom parkovisku. Večerná omša v nedeľu o 17h je striedavo v slovenskom alebo maďarskom jazyku a o 18h vo farskom kostole opačne.

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.
