Bunker complex in the Venosta Valley
As a territory of passage between the Alps, the Venosta Valley has always been a place of military interest. Not only for the Romans, but also for the Hapsburgs and Napoleon, this land represented a strategical area. But the Second World War has left its marks here too. Most of them, however, are not visible to the naked eye, because they are composed of bunkers designed as shelters or military outposts. Even though they are no longer used for military purposes, these hidden fortifications are part of the Alpine Wall. Now, these testimonies are integrated into the landscape of orchards and surrounding pastures. History lovers do not miss the chance of a guided tour of these facilities.
