The door in the wall

The entrance door that leads into the square where the Church of Santa Maria Assunta is located is what remains of the primitive village. The upper part, called the castle, housed a fortified building full of provisions, weapons and ammunition and around it began to rise houses that, given the high position and the adverse weather conditions, lined up with a concentric semicircle on the South side, leaving the one exposed to the North uncovered. The inhabitants enjoyed lands, franchises and municipal privileges if they kept their residence inside the Castle.

Of the 16th century fortification there is still a portal, and a few tracts of the walls, from which you have access to the small square of the church of S. Maria Assunta (16th century).
