  • An important place, a place of reflection, where collected bones and skulls of fallen in battle of three armies. A place of silence and total respect where it seems to be able to perceive sounds in battle of the soldiers and the screams of suffering of the wounded. Visiting the ossuary we keep alive the memory of this dreadful battle and those who died. The ossuary is located inside the small church shortly before the Tower of San Martino. Free admission.

  • The Chapel is not for schache nerves. To thousands the bones and skull are there at the battle of Solferino fallen more than 25,000 in the number), the farmers from the surrounding area repeatedly dug up in their fields. Thus was built a chapel of the bones. A macabre theatrum mortis.

  • It was my first visit to an ossuary ... I wouldn't call "making a killing" of places like that, but rather places for reflection and meditation. You stand in front of an infinite number of skulls, you look ... and think of these people falls on the battlefield. Enemy armies, who have found eternal rest together, as if to symbolize the futility of colliding with one another and mix blood with more blood.
