The military cemetery at Prosecco/Prosek is considered one of the most important Austro-Hungarian cemeteries in Italy. It is situated at the bottom of a karst doline and is accessible by a descending staircase. Mortal remains from other nearby cemeteries were transferred to this one, so that altogether about 5,000 Austro-Hungarian soldiers who fell on the Kras of Trieste and Gorizia are buried in the Prosecco cemetery, including the ones from the former cemeteries in Doberdò del Lago/Doberdob and Piedimonte/Podgora (Mt. Calvario/Kalvarija).
