  • It is a memorial to the fallen of World War 1. Not suitable for a fun family outing. I found the building itself not so interesting, rather the history that here a castle stood.

  • The military shrine of Rovereto, was built between 1933 and 1936, circular-shaped, lie over twenty thousand fallen Italians and austro-Hungarians, the great war, can be seen a part of trenches dating back to 1915. Inside, upstairs, there are the tombs where rest, people Damiano Chiesa and Fabio Filzi. Downstairs the marble bust of Marshal Guglielmo Pecori Giraldi.

  • Easy access. Small free parking available for visitors. The shrine sits atop a small hill theatre of clashes in the great war. At the beginning of the climb the road that leads to the clearing, on the left, you can see the remains of the trenches. Too bad it's not possible to exploit them due to the presence of vipers (so reads a sign). At the foot of the staircase leading to the shrine there are artillery pieces well preserved despite having no shelter from the weather. Inside the shrine, on + levels, are the remains of over 20 thousand soldiers (some strangers) of various nationalities (about half), the altars of Fabio Filzi and Damiano Chiesa and the bust of the Italian 1st Army Commander. Pity that inside there were some water infiltration and damaged walls and the lawn outside was not "English" as deserves a historic place like this.
