Church of Sant'Alfonso
This singular church, old watching tower, of octagonal shape was built in the 1600s and was later equipped with a round roof and restore. Standing on the Quisisana hill, it protects the village and represents its unmistakable emblem. It was transformed into church in 1837 by peoples' will impressed by the preaches of the Liquorini.The saint is still renowned for its miraculous intervention during dry periods. In such occasions its statue is taken around the village on a religious procession to beg for rain. Once upon a time the village lords were buried under the church's floor, whereas the others were situated in the big underground cave. Some years ago it was restored following many years of carelessness.
