This village overlooks the Crati valley and has very ancient origins, as stated by a small bronze statue dated 500 B.C. representing a young girl with a crown. The village arises around its historic centre, dominated by the XIII century feudal castle. The castle, without towers or bastions, is built over a deep moat that was a natural defence against enemies invasions. The castle at present is closed for restoration works.
