SAN MARCO BATTERY

THE LONG RANGE CANNONS THAT PROTECTED VENICE

Two large long-range cannons (18 km) crowned the 360° rotating armored towers of the San Marco Battery, dedicated to the patron saint of Venice. The main body and accessory buildings of this fortification had a surrounding wall and were once sheltered by an artificial sand dune.

During your outdoor vacation, explore the routes of the Great War: come and see the remains of the walls and the large iron gate crowned by the Lion of St. Mark. Can you also find the Decauville tracks?

The St. Mark’s Battery open-air War Museum can be visited every day.

Please ask the reception of the Camping Mediterraneo to enter.
