Mt. Flondar

Easy | 1.5–2 hrs

Only few traces have been left of the old farmhouses on Flondar, i.e. a plateau west of Mt. Hermada/Grmada. They were completely demolished by the guns of the opposing forces in 1917, when the place became the scene of very important combats during the Eleventh and the Twelfth Isonzo Battles. Flondar became famed for two counterattacks by the imperial forces in early June and early September 1917 (recognized subsequently as an omen of the events to come), which inflicted heavy losses on the Italian troops that had but shortly before conquered the position and were then forced to withdraw for some “crucial” hundreds of metres.
