The gun positions on the elevation Col Colàt (280 m) are part of the Itinerario del Ponte di Pinzano e la batteria del Col Colàt. The Italians started to fortify Col Colàt even before World War I. The hill is located above Pinzano al Tagliamento. Turn right when in the village, to Via Castello. After 200 metres, a mule track on the left side of the road leads to the platform where smaller buildings (ammo depots) stood. Continue along the footpath and within a few minutes you reach Col Colàt. Just like on Ragogna Hill, 149-mm guns were also emplaced here in 1909. There were pillboxes here and an underground multi-level ammo depot (gun shells), equipped with a freight elevator.
