  • Everyone should go for a ride with the shrine. It is impressive. You realize how many people have died for our freedom. Than the war is cruel and atrocious. Than pain. Museums outbuildings are very explanatory, affected. The only drawback is you have to be careful when crossing the road to enter the shrine. Very interesting also the reproduction of the trench.

  • If you go around here a visit is mandatory. The shrine is solemn and tremendous tragedy which makes me think it was the 1 g. m. Beware summer months because of the heat.

  • is a truly captivating with historical references of the first world war but built in 20 years. You can visit the Museum and mausoleum over the Hill of memories.

  • very nice place. very interesting the museum in front of the "step monument"
  • Srhljivo lepo.
  • One of the most impressive sights in Friuli Venezia Giulia. It can be accessed both from the central square and up along the grand staircase, by car or via a side road that passes through the dense vegetation and leads directly to the top of the Park. It's a must if you go for the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, beyond the view you can enjoy from above, the monument is well maintained and certainly makes you think about how many gave their lives for their country.

  • Gorgeous, not to be missed. In front of the shrine there is the old one still open. On the back of a beautiful copper map with all the mountain scenery and battles, shame that tree growth would prevent mountaintop vision. Maintenance stairs is bad in several locations, will hopefully be fixed soon.
