Sights include the church of Santa Maria della Lode a Vescovìo, built in the 9th century and modified in the 12th century to the current Romanesque appearance. The interior has a single nave and houses a 13th-14th century fresco of the Universal Judgement and scenes from the Old and New Testament. The bell tower dates from the 10th-11th century, and was built using remains from the ancient Roman town of Forum Novum.
