Italian Charnel House Reviews
Spectacular views from a mausoleum for the Italian dead of WW1. A place to consider the conflict that scarred these beautiful mountains and valleys. more »
This is a nice monument to visit in combination with a round walk to Slap Kozjak but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it specifically. Also it's better viewed from afar than up front. more »
Final rating place for over 7,000 Italian soliders who died in the surrounding area during World War I, including the remains of 500 unknowns. The Charnel House was built around the always existing Church of St. Anton Adams was dedicated in 1938 by Mussolini. The monument is a somber reminder of the terrible price paid by so many during all. The setting is splendid with an incredible view, befitting the sacrifice made by these soldiers. 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.
This place is really charming. I had an incredible sense of calm here. At the same time, it is a monument to the horrors of war.
