The village was originally thought as a bulwark, built on the ruins of the ancient Sestio. The town then developed in the Middle Age. Saracena’s architectural works are also impressive, the most interesting ones are: the ancient Church of S. Maria del Gamio and the Church of S. Leone Taumaturgo (both belong to the Byzantine age), the Church of S. Maria delle Armi (Middle Age), the chapels of the Madonna of Constantinople and Santa Maria dell'Alto. The territory is part of the mountains Orsomarso and Verbicaro. A honorable mention goes to the Ascia di Scardiello, which is a limestone block on the bottom of the Scardiello relief.
