The ruins of the castle are impressive :) It is a pity that the area is protected against entering. I hope that there will be finances for the necessary renovation so that you can see the whole thing. Because the place has potential.

The ruins of the castle are well preserved. It shows how much work was needed to build it. The surrounding could be nicer but overall an enjoyable place.

The ruins are beautifully preserved. It is interesting who and how they invaded the top of the walls, which are still beautifully preserved

A beautiful stone castle. A rare configuration in this part of Poland. Unfortunately, the whole thing is fenced because it is said to be in danger of collapsing. If this is the case, then you need to protect the walls and let people use these beautiful ruins.

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.
