The Austro-Hungarian Caverns below the Ridge of Sabotin

The Austro-Hungarian army began fortifying caverns on Sabotin in 1915, and defended the position untill August of 1916, when Sabotin was taken by the Italians in the sixth Isonzo battle. The interior of the caverns was paneled with wood, and wooden barracks were erected in front of their entrances. Food and ammunition were transported up Sabotin from the Soca Valley via a cable way.
