Fort Colle delle Benne

Town: Levico Terme

Open Driveway

Located on top of the homonymous hill, this fort is located about 2 km from the center of Levico Terme. Also called Forte di San Biagio, it was built by the Austro-Hungarians between 1880 and 1882.

It is part of the first phase Vogl style forts (late 1980s), characterized by a broken plant on two or three blocks or horseshoe-shaped wings, to which is added a stone section for close defense, armored and not, the partial ground cover and the open courtyard.

The plan of the fort follows a polygonal course and the north side is equipped with a buttress with an armored external body. A line of trenches, served by a mule track, went up the impervious mountain coast up to Busa Granda (1,500 m).

Twin work of the Forte di Tenna, located on the hill overlooking the lake from the south side, it served as an observatory and deposit, thanks to its rearward position from the front. Dismantled of the iron structures at the beginning of the 1930s, removed from the Military Property in 1931, it was sold for 3,000 Lire to the Municipality of Levico on 13.10.1933.
