This place has a really peaceful ambiance , spectacular views, The bell has been re-cast several times but is apparently the largest ringing bell in the world

A good drive out of Rovereto up the hillside to the location. However, it was worth the drive as the views from the bell were great. Art displays and areas to walk around outside.

Second day trip to beautiful Rovereto and right on time caught Bus No 7 from stop outside Tourist Office. Scenic journey of about 20 mins with great driver and all the locals.
Bus left at 10.03 so planned to catch the 12,24 back . (Not Sundays though)
Wonderfully welcoming staff as is the norm in wonderful Trentino !
Entrance is included with the Trentino Card.
Didn't even know about the Pilgrimage Path until the wonderful photos in the Main Hall.
Excellent video in English gives you all the 'bellground' and is highly emotive as is the whole site !
The Bell of course in its serene setting . The Art Gallery should not be missed as you see how artists, famous and not so famous have been inspired by the Bell.
The 'Parco della Memoria' not only explains the History but also the many famous visitors and ceremonies held over the years.
Not one for souvenirs but had to break a habit here .
Thanks to wonderful desk staff who told me that the Civic Museum was open all day (tourist leaflets said the opposite).
Bus arrived right on time to take me back to Rovereto Centre,.
A totally unique experience. Not just a cool souvenir on my cold fridge front but a 'perma'- nent reminder of the humble priest Don Rossaro and his bronze bell, now for the billions of humanity to hear !

The bell was made in 1924 from the bronze of the cannons of all the nations participating in the First World War. It was designed based on the idea of the Roveretan priest Antonio Rossaro and placed on the Malipiero tower in the castle. The bell was moved here in 1965 when the whole complex was built to host it. The whole place is very moving, well organized with fantastic view.

Wonderful location, which promotes peace. I have been fortunate to take
part in a peace ceremenies in this wonderful place a couple of years ago and want to come back. Great memory of those who lost their lives, monument made of melted cannons teaches us about the stupidity and tragedy of wars. Great landscape in vicinity of beautiful Rovereto.

You feel a sense of serenity and peace at the monument to the Fallen - a display centre, flag-lined walkway and huge historic bell made from former canons to promote peace.

We went there at night and enjoyed awesome mountaintop views of many villages below. A thunderstorm in the distance added to the drama.

The bell tolls at 930pm and it is awe-inspiring. Simple yet resounding and imposing.

Note: There's no safety fencing at the edge of the mountain, where the bell is located, so pay special attention.

Not only is it a treat to actually look out over the valley from the bell's site, but inside the Campana dei Caduti Foundation always has exhibitions on war/peace, using different media and materials. Don't miss the Sunday at Noon ringing of the bell, if 9/9:30pm during the week is too late/dark for young kids. P.s. bring ear plugs in that case... You can go here even in case of bad weather as some of the amphitheater's steps from where one can look out over the bell/valley are covered.

This is one of the quietest places I have ever experienced. Sit with your eyes closed and the only sound is the gentle ringing of the lanyards flapping against the flagpoles. The bell itself is impressive. We were lucky enough to be able to be present for the 100 peels at 9:00 in the evening. Goose pimples and shivers down my back.
Ample parking and fantastic scenery.
The only minor criticism concerns the photo museum; overwhelming and repetitive - a fine example of "less is more"
Well worth visiting.

A bus (number 7 if I remember correctly) from the centre of Rovereto was our first choice, but – at the time of our visit – they ran very infrequently (every two hours, I think), and we’d just missed one. The lady in the tourist office dismissed the very idea of the uphill walk (“perhaps you could walk back down”, she suggested, as she gazed upon the obvious greyness of our hair) but we reckoned it wasn’t worth waiting, so we set off. We are used to walking.
It took us ... well, I’m not sure exactly, but perhaps around 90 minutes to reach the bell from the town centre. We followed the main road up out of town, and the route was obvious, not least because of the number 7 bus-stops every few hundred yards. In any event, we beat the bus to the bell.
There were very few people around. The ticket desk receptionist kindly led us to a room where we watched a video (in English) explaining the history of the bell, which we found interesting. Then we meandered around the exhibitions. The bell itself is set overlooking the valley, with excellent views.
Afterwards, we strolled down a steepish section of the Path of Peace, through woods, immediately adjoining the entrance to the site, where – after several minutes – we joined a paved road. At that point, we decided to make a side-trip to the mausoleum, before returning along the road back into Rovereto. A good day’s activity.
