Fröderyd Church is a large nice white church building with a nice and pleasant cemetery. Framed by a wonderful old stone wall. The back faces nature and gives a certain feeling of stillness. The interior of the church appeals to me a lot with nice colors and details. The church is located opposite Lina Sandell Gården in Fröderyd. There is parking opposite the church and next to the church bus stop with glass bus shelter. Apparently there is no handicap entrance / ramp to the church.

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.
