Artistically interesting id the parish church dedicated to the Lady of the Assumption, built in the only town square, is a majestic building, especially if compared to the simple houses that surround it.

Inside are some beautiful paintings and the marble altar, with a painting of the Virgin.
Particular is the church dedicated to saint Louis, where the sick were kept during the pestilences.
The town fair is held on August, 15th.
