History

This town’s name has a bizarre origin: it comes from “nighella”, the name of an herb often found in this land.

The town is already referred to in a document dating from the year 1033. From the medieval times stand a square tower, some ruins of the ancient walls and an arch.

The latter has been called “arch of the French”, to remember the passage of a troop of 12,000 soldiers during Napoleon’s first Italian campaign.
