Italian Chapel
The Italian Chapel was built by Italian prisoners-of-war who were engaged in building the Churchill Barriers in WWII. It now remains as a moving gesture to peace and friendship and is one of the most visited place in Orkney. Italian ex-POWs and their families regularly visit and the people of Orkney are especially proud of their little gem.
