The entire site was developed during fascist rule, under Mussolini, and this main sculpture took three years of uninterrupted work to complete.

  • The atmosphere of recollection and deep sadness that characterizes the place does meditate. To visit, not for curiosity or morbid, but to try to think about how stupid humanity in its thirst for conquest.

  • A memorial to honour to our compatriots who sacrificed their lives for the country. Unfortunately, the fascist footprint and the connection with the speech given by Mussolini in Trieste on the same day of the inauguration of the shrine make this monument a symbol of propaganda and not just a memory

  • THIS ... is the word that echoes everywhere ... Let us pause to think well what you have ever had this word ... we visit the trenches ... we come up to the top and enter into the Church ... TERRIBILIS LOCUS ISTE ... honor the fallen! dutiful in silence inside seem to echo the grenades ...

  • Historically very interesting but I have never liked the extremity in building these big memorials. The memorial is more about showing of.
  • very nice place. very interesting the museum in front of the "step monument"
  • There are no words to describe how many emotions transmits this place. Who is friulano knows it's a stage that must do once in your life because you will not forget what has been to make the Italy that we know today. Please respect the dead, ... is a memorial place. Not a place to lounge and get indexed by shouting.

  • Truly unique place that conveys a sense of grandeur to grandeur. Anyone who has the honor of a visit is the presence of more than one hundred thousand heroes who sacrificed their lives for their country. Maintenance is good, easy to reach the Summit (the chapel with the three crosses) by car without difficulty. It is absolutely necessary that the visitor takes appropriate behavior to the sacredness of the place

  • Majestic place, of a suggestion only. Exudes Holiness and love of country from any stone or blade of grass. Respect and gratitude are expressed in religious silence that relies on the history, the memory of the greatest and generous sacrifice offered to the country to visit with their children at least once in their lifetime.
