German War Memorial
The Pordoi German War Memorial stands 2,239 m up, just to the east of the Dolomite pass. The monumental complex includes an octagonal tower with a wide, circular, two-shelved base. The central crypt holds the remains of 454 German and 8,128 Austro-Hungarian dead taken from several war cemeteries in a mass tomb. The outer shelves hold the remains of 842 German dead of the Wehrmacht of World War II, coming from several cemeteries in the province of Belluno.
