The Path of the Cavendish Road

Progetto Finanziato dall'Unione Europea

Every year this event takes place, a walk that recalls the events of the 1944 war, the places of the battle of Montecassino.

It is an ancient mule track that connected Caira (a hamlet of Cassino) with the Abbey, passing through the Albaneta plateau, where a farmhouse was used by the Germans as a command post and field infirmary.

The Cavendish Road was built by Indian and New Zealand engineers to create the necessary road network for the opening of another front and the start of Operation Revenge.

It is a 6.5 km long path and along its route it is possible to immerse oneself in the places that were the scene of tragic events, where it is possible to come across a Sherman tank, in the exact place where it was blown up at dawn on 12 May by the German forces, later transformed into a monument.
