The museums of the Great War

We invite you to visit the Lagazuoi 5 Torri area, a perfect combination of  nature and history, in one of the most beautiful areas of the Dolomites.

On these mountains an incredible war was waged between the Italian and Austro-Hungarian armies.

As a memorial to those tragic events, the most extensive museum of the First World War has been set up, consisting of the open air museums of the Lagazuoi, the 5 Torri and the Sasso di Stria and the museum of the Tre Sassi Fort

The museum complex extends to a radius of 5 Km and lets you discover the various aspects of the Great War in the mountains, in one of the most breathtaking walks of the Dolomites.
