Lovely and spiritual experience

It's really not worth the money they ask for this! Google will show you even better images. If it was for free, i'd say it would be worth while a quick visit, but only when you are in the neighbourhood. So not worth the money!

Nice building, renovated in 1993, still serves once a week for prayers. The entry fee is 400 huf, which fully worth the experience, you can go to the stairs, look around, there are a few interesting items inside. The wooden ceiling is amazing, it is very special, as usually in such holy Islam places, they have a stone one.

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.
