This small mountain village is situated along the tourist route that leads to Sacro Monte della Verna. In ancient times it was a spa village with flowing sulphurous thermal springs.
It was a feudal village at one time under the Ubertini family. Parts of the original structure of the ancient castle and the Town Hall are still visible.
Interestingly, the position of the village on the border of the territory made it ahot spot for smuggling tobacco and gun powder. This ancient smuggling activity is remembered with an annual walk through the village and countryside, which attracts large numbers of walkers and travellers.
