Two mile Bunker Which Was The Largest In Europe And Rumoured To Have A Secret Stash Of Gold Buried..






Nearly three miles long and burrowed out of more than 10,000 square feet of rock, this gigantic underground bunker built by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini is one of the most impressive structures of World War Two.

 

The Mount Soratte tunnel complex, 27 miles north of Rome, was not only Europe’s largest bunker but also one of the most mysterious – surrounded by rumours it still contains 75 tonnes of Nazi gold hidden by its later German occupiers.

 

Evacuation work began in the autumn of 1937, when Mussolini – known as El Duce – demanding the construction of a bunker reaching up to 300 yards underground to house the Italian government and generals.
