Bunkers and other WWII traces in Milano Marittima
The WWII has left its traces also in Milano Marittima, did you know that there are numerous remaining bunkers?
The Bunkers were built by the Germans with the objective to protect the Eastern part of Gothic line, to prohibit allied troops to penetrate along the Adriatic. Close to the were the beaches are today, you’d find barbed wire and minefields.
Inside the bunkers cannons and machine guns were installed, although none of them were actually used as there never was an attack from the sea.
The bunkers in the area are almost all of the “Tobruk” design.
We’re sure that during your strolls around Milano Marittima you have seen several of these bunkers without even knowing it! Many, in fact, have been incorporated in hotels and private houses, while other WWII traces are still visible to this day!
Behind Hotel Titano and the beach establishment Peppino, and also in several other locations, you can find the frequently used defense line with raisor sharp cement and iron heads, all close together to form a wall, more commonly known as “dragon teeth.”
