Mt. Lagazuoi and its galleries: images from the First World War
During the First World War, the frontline trailed along the Dolomites and various signs from those times have been etched upon Mt. Lagazuoi. This area rises up to 2,800 meters above sea level and shows traces of battles fought between the Italian and Austrian troops.
The "outdoor museum" of Lagazuoi can be reached following the marked passageways that depart from the Falzarego Pass and the Valparola Pass. Alternatively, you may take the Falzarego Lagazuoi cable car that reaches the summit in 3 minutes.
The mountain is home to endless kilometers of galleries, which have been recently restored and may be traveled upon thanks to the installation of security cables and steps. Any visitor can admire the historic trenches and war posts.
