A few kilometers from Desenzano del Garda, is located an important place for the history of Italy - San Martino della Battaglia. This place is famous for the battle between Italians and Austrians that occurred on June 24th 1859.
In memory of this bloody event, where tens of thousands of people have lost their lives, a 74 meters high tower was built between 1880-1893.
Every night there are three lights that beam the italian tricolor on top of the tower.
Behind the tower is the historical museum with memorabilia and historical documents of the battle, while in the adjacent ossuary are 2,619 human remains of Italian and Austrian soldiers.
