Lannaskede old Church is a very old small church building probably from the 1100s with a nice bell stack of wood. Impressive is the preserved framing of the ancient main entrance. The interior and all the amazing paintings are admirable. The cemetery feels comfortable with a soft grassy area without crunching potholes all around. The framing of the old stone wall feels lovely with the moss on. Nature has taken over. A small sitting group at the entrance and a park bench at the side invite you to a rest. On the other side of the road is a large parking lot.

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.
