CHIESA ARCIPRETALE DI S. AGATA V.M.
This church was built in Neoclassical style in 1881 and was designed by the architect Pritelli, but an older religious building used to be on this site around 1494, probably designed by Bramantino, as some remains of the facade decoration can still be seen in the sacristy.
PALAZZO COMUNALE - TOWN HALL
The present town hall (the Palazzo Comunale) has always been a public building and is thought to be as old as the castle (sec. XI), to which it was attached, as the Napoleonic land registers state in 1800.
PALAZZO DEI CONTADINI
The ‘Palazzo dei Contadini’ (farmers’ palace) was restored in 1998 and is now a multipurpose cultural centre, popularly know as "Ca di cuntaden", in the local dialect.
TORRE CIVICA
The clock tower was built where the old Medieval castle gateway used to be since it was founded around the early centuries after 1000, probably upon Barbarossa's wish, as some documents state. The same old documents report that the castle was surrounded by very strong walls and a deep moat called "la Fossa" (the moat). What is thought to be left of the old castle is probably just one of the two towers, which was thereafter transformed into the clock tower, before 1377.
