It was a comune until 2017. The hamlet is overlooked by large Castle, now home to a large White truffle museum, and there is a festival celebrating the rare and fragrant tuber each year. The historical centre also houses the churches of San Giovanni Battista (pieve) and San Pietro in Villore, both of medieval origin.
