Great place to walk around especially if you go with a pusher or a stroller.

Cool to learn more about this prehistoric landmark. There are more menhirs scattered around the landscape nearby.

Its an open air space, located just beside the road. The Dolmen of Weris is dates back to 2000-1800 BCE. There are many Menhirs standing in front of the Dolmen.

There is an impressive hike between the big monoliths of the Dolmen of Wéris. Some are hidden between high fields of corn, some are under a collection of trees, there is also a place where most of the stones come from not too far away. It requires a little walk in the forest. I felt like some witchy stuff must have taken place in the past in these places. It's an amazing thing to visit while you're away from the busy Durbuy.

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.
