  • The mountain itself (opening with a panorama of Gorizia), and climb on it and descend (car) deliver a true pleasure. An interesting temple complex on top of a metal sculpture of a human with birds. All this you can see and feel, visiting the holy mountain. When traveling from Kobarida Gorizia (New Goricu) by this attractions is not accessible without visiting it.

  • Beautiful place after a beautiful winding road which is nothing but a long Via Crucis leading to the monastery. Inevitable if you spend a few days in those areas.

  • The Sveta Gora pri Gorici or Monte Santo is an exceptional place. From the religious point of view, the sanctuary of our Lady of the assumption and Franciscan convent from which there is news already in the 14th century, but which was destroyed and rebuilt several times, the last after the War for being this mountain of nearly 700 m altitude place of battle between Italy and Austria-Hungary. Historically, it was theatre of war in front of the Isonzo/Soča, as has been said, in the great war. And from the point of view of landscape, panoramic views are sublime: the North, the National Park of Triglav, where are situated the Julian Alps; Plumb, the Soča River Valley, which changes its name to the more known Isonzo in Gorizia. On the other hand, but immediately, the monte Sabotino/Sabotin, that as a historical curiosity is divided between Italy and Slovenia since 1947 and since 1985, under the Treaty of Osimo between Italy and Yugoslavia, is crossed by a road that passes through neutral Italian territory but that connects (va) Yugoslav territory today Slovenian, known as ' Strada di Osimo». And to the South you can see the del Friuli plain and the Adriatic Sea to the mouth of the Isonzo, near Monfalcone. Further, the views already arrive to the Veneto, but the suspended dust made it impossible to see a concrete location. The imagination is free I would think that it is possible to see Venice, but this is a desideratum.
