Nice sacral rotunda, unfortunately it is closed and cannot be visited. Nice view above the surrounding landscape, village below and the castle on the hill on the opposite mountain side. The information boards put there give explanations in Czech, English and even German. Very positively surprised by that fact. Wouldn't have visited though if I knew that one can't enter. Only recommend going up there if you enjoy a nice view ;)

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.
