Alpine Wall - Fort Primož

This fort was part of the Alpine Wall (Vallo Alpino), a defence line constructed in the Italian Alpine in the '30s by the fascist dictactor Benito Mussolini. The underground fort was one of the biggest fortified positions on the Italo-Yugoslav border. It consists of several casemates connected by a tunnel system of 500 meters. Several casemates were blown up by German troops in November 1943.
