    If you are passing through Solferino well worth a stop to this monument, especially if you are in the company of boys. See all these bones stacked, the skulls so deployed more than eerie is suggestive, makes you want to go over the historical period. The Church is immaculately maintained, as the driveway so that it can access. Recommended

    Wonderfully placed in a bucolic surreal reality. To remain open-mouthed. My son was speechless ....

    ossuary that makes you think and be astonished to watch all those bones of all those people who died in the battle and on some skulls you see the signs, a macabre visit but certainly to do

  • Very special place to visit. Very impressive to see and to know the story.

  • It is a very sad that we should make us reflect about the transience and brevity of life. The soldiers who died in battle were superior to the famous battle of Waterloo which marked the end of Napoleon Bonaparte.

  • Austrian and French 18000 22000 died at the battle of Solferino, which ended with the defeat of the Austrians. This ossuary, and surrounding streets, make memory at that battle and its dead, whose remains have been accumulated on the walls along with busts of chi, the massacre of boys, she commanded. A moment of reflection to be allowed.

  • Schedules are those of public offices while being a church. It is actually an ossuary with cubic meters of bones from the fields after the battle of San Martino and Solferino fought between Piedmontese and Austrians for the independence of Italy. The Red Cross was born here for insight to a Swiss after seeing so much destruction and so much horror. Don't forget to also see the Museum not far away and the Tower, not the highest but called Italy light 300 metres, insistent on a hill because of the whole area, which allowed a great visibility on all fronts and therefore unassailable.
