Austro-Hungarian Cemetery

The Austro-Hungarian Cemetery in Palmanova is one of the biggest and most important military sites in Friuli-Venezia Giulia and holds the remains of over 19,000 soldiers captured during the First World War. The burial ground is composed of a wide road with cypresses that cross the lawn where the 4,000 soldiers – whose identity is known – rest.  These tombs, simple and tidy, are characterized by bare tombstones that show the names of the fallen. In addition, at the end of the street we find a chapel and two large mass graves in which more than 15,000 bodies of unnamed soldiers were buried.
