On the Colle di Gretta (Gretta Hill), architect Arduino Berlam erected the impressive 70-meter-high Faro della Vittoria (Lighthouse of Victory) in white Istrian stone. On top of the lighthouse is a scaled dome on which a bronze winged Victory stands. The sculpture was made by Giovanni Mayer, and at the foot of the lighhouse is the anchor of the "Audace", the torpedo-boat destroyer (invented and constructed in Rijeka - Croatia) from which the first Italian soldiers landed in 1918.
