Mountain Biking Highlight
The twelfth and final battle of the Isonzo (Soca) in 1917 later became known as the "Battle of Karfreit" (today's Kobarid). Thousands of people fell victim to the cruel trench warfare on the Isonzo Front.The Italian ossuary, with the church of St. Anton (Kostnica s Cerkvijo Sv. Antona) in the center of the complex, was built in memory of the Italians who fell in the region. In 1938 it was inaugurated by Mussolini. Even today the memorial belongs to the administrative area of Italy.The monument has the shape of an octagon that narrows in three rings towards the top, where the church, which was built in the 17th century, is located.From the place you can crank up the way of the cross, which is laid out as a wide street, to the memorial. From there you have a wonderful view of Kobarid and the Socatal.

It is a place for reflection and
But it also offers a fantastic view of the valley.
If you want to see it coming from Kobarid, you crank on the way up past sculptures depicting Jesus crucifixion.
At the top you can continue the path halfway to the left behind the facility and drive a trail downhill. You will come straight down to the Soča. 🤗
