The world was shocked to discover shelter on the steep rocky surface of a mountain in the Dolomites, Italy

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 WWI. 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 blood. Amazing photos depict an abandoned Italian WWI refuge embedded in a vertical rockface in the Monte Cristallo massif of the Ampezzo Dolomites Natural Park.

It’s believed the refuge was constructed by Italian soldiers during World War I, in what was known as ‘The White War’


It’s unclear how the refuge was built, but the troops were known to use rope ladders and cableways to scale the rock faces.
