In addition to the noble residence, in the suggestive historical centre you can see a Romanic bell tower, dated back to 13th century, the Umiliate’s and Sant’Agostino’s brotherhoods, dated back on the 13th century, the parish church, built on the 10th century in Piedmontese-Gothic style.

In the Santo Stefano hamlet you can find worth Romanic apse, dated back to 1100.

The Horzowski auditorium, built in a natural amphitheatre , proposes relevant concerts.

History

It has been founded in the Roman era; later, it has been owned by the Longobards and the Carolingians.

The name “monte forte” comes from a military expression used to indicate its important strategic position during the wars between the local lords.

After having been owned by many different families, the town was since 1700 a property of the marquis Scarampi.
