This short walk into Bassano is an affecting memorial to a specific group of young men killed in the Second World War. Each tree bears the image and name of one of the martyrs.

Viale dei Martiri is steeped in very sad history, it is impossible not to be moved as you walk along this passage, photographs and flowers memorialise those who were hung from each of the trees by the germans during the war.

Passing this way you can see the many trees decorated by plates that recall the martyrs hanged during World War II by the Germans. The landscape is very beautiful and very nice.
