Fort Pozzacchio/Valmorbia

Distributed over three floors, the complex is entirely dug into the rock

Recent restoration works have returned to the public a gem from the First World War, a real engineering masterpiece.

A subterranean labyrinth of tunnels, depots, soldiers’ lodgings, connecting stairs, protected walkways and firing stations almost entirely dug into the rock: built according to advanced building techniques that anticipated the bunkers of World War II, Fort Pozzacchio/Valmorbia is the last Austro-Hungarian fortress built between the 19th  and early 20th century in Trentino.

The three floors housed troop lodgings, service rooms, firing and sighting posts. The dormitories were set up in barracks built inside the caves, suitably separated from the main building, where connections branched out to machine gun stations and searchlights looking out into the valley.
