  • In this Chapel, the oldest of Solferino, hundreds of soldiers, who fought more than centocinquantanni ago from these campaigns. Here it is certainly important to know if rest of Piedmont, French or Austrians, the thing that matters most is that they are United in death. By entering this site sacred and worship you remain stunned seeing aligned skulls and bones piled up, and our thoughts turn to warn of any war that still fights. Not only school classes should visit this place, but more often the rulers of the Earth.

  • the Church holds the remains of soldiers neatly stacked, immersed in a park full of blooming violets. Don't visit if sensible.

  • Of those who lost their lives in the battle of Solferino and helped build the Italy. Inside it preserves the bones of about 7000 soldiers who perished during the day or in the following days for injuries. Initially buried in mass graves and only later it was decided to assign to the ossuary a Deconsecrated Church to make proper burial to these heroes. There is a similar ossuary near San Martino. Watch.

  • 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.
