Italian military chapel on Planica

Not much is known about the chapel. It is often referred to as the chapel Bes, since it was supposedly the captain Celestino Bes who had it built to the memory of the killed Italian soldiers in the First World War. The plan of the chapel is rectangular with a semi-circular presbytery and a cylindrical roof. The front façade is decorated with stylized shells and rifles. An inscription on the entrance lintel reads “CONSOLATRIX.AFFLICTORUM”. This is the title of a prayer to the Virgin Mary taken from Lauretanian Litany, meaning “the Comforter of the Afflicted”. Close to the chapel was a supply camp of the Italian Army during the war. The chapel was restored in the years 1996 and 2003.
