Maison Guiette also known as Les Peupliers, is a house in Antwerp designed by Le Corbusier in 1926 and built in 1927. It was the studio and living quarters of René Guiette, a painter and art critic. One of the Franco-Swiss architect's lesser-known works, it is an early example of the International Style.

In July 2016, the house and several other works by Le Corbusier were inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Interesting home for those who like modernist architecture. In the summer the house is completely covered by ivy plants. Therefore, to be able to see them really well, it is best to look outside the green seasons

Nice design from Le Corbusier.

This is listed under UNESCO as The Architectural Work of Le Corbusier (1 of 17), an Outstanding Contribution to the Modern Movement. However, sadly, this is a private residence like Stoclet Palace and cannot be accessed.

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.
