  • Is hosted inside the Church of San Pietro in Vincoli, the oldest in the community, later converted into a charnel house. Collects 1,413 skulls and bones of 7,000 fallen of the three armies that on 24 June 1859 faced each other in the bloody battle of Solferino, battle of the second war of independence. The ossuary of Solferino is reached along an avenue lined with cypress trees. To the left of the ossuary is a bronze bust depicting Napoleon III, and on the right is a small monument commemorating the French General Charles Auger, died from injuries sustained in the battle of Solferino. At the entrance to the ossuary are placed busts of five French generals who perished in the second war of independence. The façade of the ossuary is embellished with two mosaics representing St. Peter and Christ Redeemer; above these artistic works is a statue of the Virgin Mary

  • Worth a visit, it takes little time, enter the Chapel and feel the cold is certainly an experience. Admission is free, with the visit to the tower.

  • You should see this church particularly with young men who want to the Bundeswehr. War is pointless – better, you can represent it hardly. The call, the information to the Church and the visit of the Museum are a good post to get thoughts about peace. An important educational excursion with young people.
