Rydboholm Castle (Rydboholms slott) dates back to the Middle Ages. The castle, with the three interconnected wings around an open courtyard, dates from the 16th century. The main building was built in 1548. The castle was reconstructed during the 18th century. Southwest of the castle is a large park in English style from the early 19th century, built by Magnus Fredrik Brahe.

From the 15th century, Rydboholm was the property of members of the Sture family, followed by the Vasa dynasty and later the Brahe family. According to some sources Gustav I of Sweden, who was King of Sweden from 1523 until his death, was born at Rydboholm Castle. From 1520, it belonged to his sister, Margareta Eriksdotter Vasa.

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.
