Things to do

Foiba di Basovizza Memorial

In May 1945 this disused mine shaft was the scene of executions of Italian civilians and soldiers seized by Yugoslav occupying troops.
Foiba di Basovizza
Declared a National Monument in 1992, it is now the main memorial, and a symbol, for relatives of those who died in the foibe massacres or as a result of deportation to Yugoslavian concentration camps. Associations representing Italians expelled from Istria, Fiume and Dalmatia also come here to remember the victims of the violence of 1943-1945.

In 2007 new arrangements were made for the memorial chapel, which in 2008 acquired a Documentation Centre run by the Lega Nazionale in collaboration with the Municipality of Trieste.
