Lets not forget the soldiers .. known and unknown.
Redipuglia , 34 km north west of Trieste, is renowned for its great War Memorial where the bodies of 100,000 soldiers who died during World War 1 are buried. 40,000 are known with names inscribed on bronze plaques at the top of the huge stairway and 60,000 unknown in a two common graves. The marble stairway has 32 terraces and takes you up the hill , with views over the surrounding battlefields.
Entrance to the chapel.
There is also a museum.
Which is quite eerie....
but had to have a look.
