Werk Tenna – Fortress Tenna – Levico, Italy


Fortress Tenna is much easier to find then fortress Colle Delle Benne, it is situated at the most southern side of the town of Tenna. The road leading to it is called; “Via San Valentino” in Tenna of course.
To my surprise this fortress is also under construction. A fence is securing the construction site. I promised my family I didn’t go in (crossed my fingers here). The information and photo’s are from 2009.

To my relief they are reconstructing the fortress. After out trip to the Flaktum in Hamburg I am still shocked and afraid that they destroy these war relics. But to be honest I didn’t go in, I was alone, without Pascal. It is dangerous on your own, you can’t call for help or receive first aid if you fall or get stuck.

The Fortress is as a old as Werk Colle delle benne and is situated between the lake of levico and the lake of Caldonazzo, a 15 minutes drive from Werk Colle delle benne.

To find the fortresses in this region I used sir Moeslang’s website.
Just under the picture of the lady shoe, is a bit of text, rather small with an “kmz” site, an “add on” for the Google earth software. It gives an interactive map with locations of the Fortresses / Werk and the Moeslang site with information and photo’s.
