During the First World War the emplacement under Pichea was used by the sentries who kept watch over Val Concei. Bocca di Trat and Saval were important logistic bases for the Austrian Army. Ludwig Riccabona, to whose memory the cave is dedicated, was native to Bolzano and was the commander of the Kaiserjäger (i.e. Tirolean infantrymen) regiment in Valle di Ledro.

Author’s recommendation

Just above Galleria Riccabona, the local Schützen group (i.e. folk group) have put up a cross and a banner in memory of the Fallen in the Great War. The nearby wooden hut is a faithful reconstruction of a military outpost as it might have looked during the Great War: truly a leap into history and into the lives of soldiers at the front!
