Construction of the Villingen Münster first began in 1120. The late Romanesque church was rebuilt in around 1220. Heinrich von Fürstenberg chose the church as his burial site. In 1530, the dedication of the church was changed from John the Baptist to Mary and was consequently renamed 'Church of our Lady'.

성곽으로 둘러 싸여 있는 곳에 특이한 문양이 새겨져 있는 철문과 뭇근의 미 인지는 모르지만 특이한 조형물이 있는 외관과.. 이와 달리 안으로 들어가면 차분하면서도 엄숙한 분위기에 화려함이 있는 곳이다

Sehr schöner und stimmungsvoller Weihnachtsmarkt rund um das Münster. Zusammen ein toller Anblick, vor allem wenn es dunkel ist.

I was here just before a wedding, the atmosphere was great. The orchestra was training and people inside the church were all entranced by their music. Very exciting.

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.
