Built from 1921 to 1938, the estate of poet Gabriele d'Annunzio (1863-1938) is a sort of sanctuary where the poetry and patriotism of this aesthetic writer is celebrated against the tragic backdrop of Fascism. La Prioria shows the dark and cluttered atmosphere in which he liked to live. The Museo D'Annunzio Eroe and Museo D'Annunzio Segreto look back at his life and work. The grounds house numerous mementoes, such as the bow of the ship Puglia. The mausoleum at the top of the estate commands a fine view.
