War cemetery and chapel remembering World War I casualties in San Candido, South Tyrol, Italy.

The interesting town of San Candido, or Innichen, in the South Tyrol region of Italy is not far from the border of Austria and is visited by tourists in the summer and avid skiers in the winter. Many of the towns and villages in the South Tyrol have both Italian and German names, such as San Candido (Italian) and Innichen (German).There are many churches in San Candido, Italy, but probably the most poignant is the War chapel and cemetery. In the First World War 1914-1918 there were several hospitals in San Candido, and because, at times, the fighting was close by in the Dolomites many soldiers died in these hospitals.The military paid for the cemetery and chapel to be built in Innichen in the South Tyrol, and by November 1918 there were over 700 soldiers buried in the cemetery. Over the years the cemetery was closed, grave markers were lost and everything became overgrown. The chapel fell into ruin and there was no visual reminder of the brave soldiers who died in World War I. ... continue below the picture...
