The hills Faeit (731 m) and Campeon (759 m), located a few kilometres from the fort on Monte Bernadia-Lonza, were two important points in the defence of the border and the middle course of the Tagliamento River. Near Sammardenchia, Italian commanders ordered the construction of smaller barracks, depots, and permanent gun positions with four 149-mm guns.
Remains of depots, barracks, platforms where the guns were emplaced, and three well-preserved spare magazines for arms of 1909 can still be seen on the top of the hills Campeon and Faeit.
From the top a beautiful view opens over the Friuli hills and lowlands.
