  • The Basovizza's foiba is a monument that really makes the idea of what a foiba. Its Memorial plaques explain in detail how it was structured in a cave and the "fosso" itself is covered by a huge hatch of iron which color alone explains the atrocities of those instruments of death. Every Italian should visit and know the history that the books don't always teach. Touching and spectacular military ceremonies and commemorations are also conducted every year. Sea weed!

  • The phobia of Basovizza introduces a story remained hidden for a long time and it makes you think about what we should learn not to repeat the mistakes and tragedies of the past. Very exciting and sad. There is also a small museum very interesting.

  • Basovizza's foiba, to never forget the cruelty of men, the hatred of the victors over the vanquished, the drama of the infoibati and thousands of Italians forced exodus. LET US NEVER FORGET.

  • Is a sad place but trascuread area
  • The most famous Cave of Trieste has car parks nearby, your visit opens with a video a little long, wordy illustrative panels ... We should make it more interesting, overall rests boring. Interesting monument for not dimenticare...ma the visit has ups and downs.

  • Historic spot to visit if you're in the neighborhood, but pay close attention to the schedules of the documentation centre, otherwise the visit is limited to lawn devoid of any historical information.

  • Really impressive to think that the wonderful quiet of the karst have occurred at many horrors. It's been very instructive stop off at such a place of memory and reflection. Some things cannot be forgotten.

  • Although a monument (surrounded by several tombstones) outdoors, I recommend to visit it during the opening of the documentation centre (10-14 except Wednesdays, from July to October), where they illustrate the sad history of the place a series of panels, video and a guardian who cares about the monument. Depending on how much time is devoted to reading the panels, the visit can be quick or not, but if you are in the area of Trieste is worth stepping.
