Adavere manor was first mentioned in the second half of the 17th century. In the 16th and 17th centuries Adavere was under the rule of Põltsamaa, which as the most important town in Central Estonia administered all of the surrounding land and villages. On maps dating from 1682 Adavere is already marked as a manor. Its massive slate main building was constructed from 1892-1893. The complex also includes auxiliary buildings erected in the late 19th century - a workers' cottage and a barn and drying shed. The park (dating from the 1740s) was one of the grandest in Estonia in its day, although little remains of this today. The Art Nouveau artworks in the main building were restored in 2000. Today the building is home to Adavere School.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
