Only a few people know that, but along the coastline of Ravenna it is possible to admire various military and defensive garrisons dating back to World War II.
In the area between Lido di Savio and Casal Borsetti, it is possible to see more than fifty German BUNKERS of different types, as well as various anti-tank barrages positioned around the mouth of the Candiano canal.
Between Punta Marina Terme and Marina di Ravenna, within a few kilometres, there is the largest number of bunkers and dragon’s teeth of the whole coastline.
Many of these ones, located in the state-owned area just behind the coastal dunes, can be visited and were renovated by Associazione dei volontari ravennati CRB 360°, with the support of the State Forestry Department of Punta Marina Terme.
In spring and summer, it is possible to take part in guided tours organised by volunteers of the Proloco di Marina di Ravenna and Punta Marina.
There is also a project called Linea Galla Placidia, created with the aim of revaluing these military architectures through their valorisation, telling the stories of the people who lived during World War II.
