Museum of the Tre Sassi Fort – Passo Valparola

The Tre Sassi Fort, at Valparola Pass , is one of the most interesting testimonies to the Great War on the Dolomite front.

It was built in 1897 to defend the southern confines of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and was subsequently modernised in 1910.

After only a few weeks of war, the fortress was hit, being damaged by bombs fired from the 5 Torri, and hence evacuated.

Today the Fort has been restructured and displays the soldiers’ kits and the everyday objects they used.
