The real estate consists of two buildings. The main building has stone masonry and flat roof and leans against the mountain rock. It was originally designated to accommodate the command and as dormitory. The other building, having the same structural characteristics, was designated as storage room and garage. The compound apparently dates back to year 1932 and was built when the Alpine Wall was established to defend the border passage to Austria. It has been declared of cultural interest in accordance with decree 42/2004 with the declaration n. 682 dated 03/02/2015. The area is subject to hydrogeological restrictions.

The former barracks is located at about 17 km from the centre of Paluzza, in the district of Udine, and about 300 m from the State border between Italy and Austria. It is situated in Passo di Monte Croce Carnico, an alpine passage in the Carnic Alps at 1360 m above sea level. Not far from the barracks lays the open-air museum of Mt. Pal Piccolo, which was one of the most fought-over areas in Carnia during World War I. Here the trenches of the high mountains front are still visible and accessible. The Town of Paluzza is situated in the middle of the suggestive Friulian Dolomites, renowned natural heritage and famous location for summer excursions and winter sports.
