The parish church in the settlement is dedicated to the Three Kings and was part of a former Dominican convent, founded around 1245. The 13th-century church was restyled in the Baroque in the 17th century. The ruins of a castle used as a refuge from Ottoman raids, built in the late 15th century by the nuns from the local convent, can be seen on a hill above the settlement. It was burned down in a fire in 1788 and abandoned.
