The town was founded in the Roman age, it’s always been a crossroads of peoples, and a refuge for Basilian monks. The latter ones have left proof of their presence in the religious buildings, such as: Church of S. Maria di Mercuri, the ruins of the Castle of Mercurion and S. Cosimo’s Chapel. The territory is part of the Orsomarso mountains and is home to one of the richest and most fascinating landscapes in southern Italy: the Oriented Natural Reserve "Valle del Fiume Argentino". Here wild nature prevails, offering great examples of flora (pino loricato) and fauna (native roe deer).
