Apriķi Manor (Apriķu muižas pils) was originally completed in 1742 and a three-story octagonal Neo-Gothic tower was added at the east end during the second half of the 19th century. The building currently houses the Apriķi primary school and the Apriķi regional museum, which includes an exhibit on Finnish soldier and politician Carl Gustaf Mannerheim who lived at the manor for a time in the early 20th century.

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.
