D’Ayala house and park are very nice and were created as a holiday resort. The park is made of Italian gardens and a wonderful wood, decorated with statues and fountains. The sculptures portray myths and allegories: Diana, Spring, Summer, Hercules, the Painting, etc, and there is also an open theatre. During the Second World War, the house was used as a camp hospital and headquarters of German general, Kesserling. After the American landing to Salerno, the house became a meeting place for the allied troops.
