l'Argentina Navetas

Alaior, Spain

Biniac has two circular burial navetas that were used around 1400 B.C. and are from an earlier period than the long rectangular constructions like the Es Tudons and Rafal Rubí navetas. The east naveta was built on bedrock and has only one oval-shaped chamber, accessed via a perforated stone slab. Several slabs that had fallen over were found inside. The west naveta is also oval-shaped and the wall on the south side has dry stone cladding, clearly added at a later date.

Ahora gestionada por los propietarios del parque zoológico tiene unos horarios de visita que hay que confirmar con la propiedad pero vale la pena ver este ejemplo de naveta de planta redonda. Está en muy buen estado de conservación. Y su prácticamente gemela naveta de biniac occidental no puede decir lo mismo, pero en ella se puede observar perfectamente otros aspectos arquitectónicos.

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.
