The Church of Santa Maria in Monte (1521), built on the site of a Venetian fort, overlooks the town of Fogliano, showing inside several 16thcentury frescoes (episodes from the Gospel and Saints): those on the triumphal arch and on the apse intrados (1572) are very well executed and attributed to Secante. Two kilometres away from the centre is the renown Sacrario Militare di Redipuglia, the most important war memorial in Italy, with the tombs of about 100,000 soldiers killed in the Great War. The imposing monumental staircase lined with cypresses covers the side of Mount Sei Busi, which was the background of epic fights during the war. A small Museum of war relics may be visited on the opposite Colle S. Elia.
