The fort is magical. The beauty of the place is unique and therefore I highly recommend a visit. The only flaw is the lack of care and the total abandonment of the place: the fortification deserves more care and attention. However, the context in which it is immersed and the landscape remain unique. The road to get there is also worth a lot. 4 out of 5 stars.

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.
