I went from Caporetto, which I confess until a few years ago I thought he was in Friuli and not in Slovenia.... I remember that my father always told me about the stories of my grandfather.....

It is possible to drive up the hill to the monument, however the walk up affords the opportunity to also view the stations of the cross that line the drive.
