The Italian military shrine of El Alamein (Il sacrario militare italiano di El Alamein) is situated about 120 kms West if Alexandria near the town of El Alamein. The Itlaian military Shrine of El Alamein is an architectural masterpiece, and is built as chapel both on the outside and on the inside. The shrine consists of marble face plates for all the fallen soldiers, distributed in different rooms in the shrine. The Italian military shrine of El Alamein stands out in the middle of the desert since it’s probably the highest building in the area.
