A very special church. That woman on the bench was a funny surprise (how often there is one in the church) and the pictures and paintings were fascinating. There was also a MANGA Bible in the Bible presentation on the sidelines. Somehow, this "old" church was more modern than the modern churches. - Compared to a few other churches in the neighborhood, this was by far the best! Small but best :-D. I recommend!

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.
