Before the arrival of Albanian refugees, in 1200, the burg’s economical development depended on the monastery. Like many centers in this area of ​​the Orsomarso mountain complex, this too preserves many traces of the presence of Basilian monks, which can be better seen in the Cappella della Concezione, where there are several frescoes that seem to have taken inspiration from the Byzantine style (they’re usually attributed to Pietro Cortese). Also worth visiting is the majestic Cathedral of S. Nicola di Mira. Nature lovers may enjoy Piana di Tavolara Bosco Sant'Elia. As for folklore, some Byzantine rituals are still performed during the Holy Week.
