THE BARRACKS IN THE CYCLING ROUTES BETWEEN THE ITINERARIES OF THE GREAT WAR
Discover a different way to immerse yourself in history and nature through historic and nature trails.
“Il Mandracio” Barracks
Pedaling towards Ca’ Vio you find the first barracks built in Cavallino Treporti very close to the Pordelio canal, where there was also a small pier for docking. The long, two-storey brick and cement building was built as a depot for equipment and weapons, as well as a warehouse and orderly room. Observe on the façade the pediment with the particular workmanship at the corners.
In 1911, work also began on this imposing military building, which includes a telemetric tower in the center. The barracks building, with a concrete roof, rises on two floors. Part of the former stables and ground floor are now used as living quarters.
Keep walking through history and nature along the Pordelio. Not far from the Mandracio and the Ca’Pasquali Barracks, you will find a two-story building, which dates back to 1914 and was built to house officers. You can only see it from the outside because it is now a private dwelling. You recognize it by the two arched windows on the top, embraced by a small iron terrace.
