The parish church of Santa Maria del Podio has been built in 1642.
Interesting is the altar dedicated to S. Stefano de Anterisio, in a small church built in 1724 between the Lunghi and the Aiello valleys, on an ancient pagan sacred place.

Santo Stefano Roero was then given to many families, among which the Roero.
