  • Bones exhumed by teams of farmers ten years after the battle of Solferino (war) were transported in the Church of San Pietro, where, as a warning against the horrors of war, the remains of almost 7,000 soldiers, the French and Austrians together. The bones are placed in cells in sight while the skulls are on the wall surrounding the altar. Advice, if possible, visit it with a guide.

  • The ossuary Chapel of San Martino is a monumental ossuary located in San Martino della Battaglia, fraction of Desenzano del Garda, near the monumental Tower. The ossuary, housed within the chapel of the counts Treccani, 1,274 collects skulls and bones of 2,619 Sardinian Army soldiers of the 8th Army Corps of the Imperial Royal Austrian army who fought the bloody battle of San Martino of 24 June 1859, bloody but decisive battle of the second war of independence. The ossuary of Saint Martin was opened on 24 June 1870. Interesting for the knowledge of our history. Deserves only if you are in the area.

  • Unique testimony of a tremendous battle. Reports preserved skeletons of French and Austrian sadly fallen Italian soldiers. The tower built then in the name of Victor Emmanuel II (on which you can climb are tops) placed furnishings and images of war. The adjoining Museum which can be accessed at the bottom of the Park owns a collection of guns is heavy reading. Finds well laid out and preserved. The whole complex is kept and maintained in an excellent manner. Entrance €5
