An incredible World W.ar I Alpine shelter nestled in the steep rockface of a mountain in Italy’s Dolomites
The refuge is located on a ridge in the Monte Cristallo massif, which is part of the Ampezzo Dolomites Natural Park.
It’s thought that Italian troops built the shelter while fighting the Austro-Hungarians during W.WI. Hikers and climbers on the Via Ferrata Ivano Dibano will come across the shelter along the way. To go to this incredible location, you’ll need a dash of bravery in your bl.ood. Amazing photos depict an abandoned Italian W.WI refuge embedded in a vertical rockface in the Monte Cristallo massif of the Ampezzo Dolomites Natural Park.
