The town was founded by Albanian refugees, the same as many other Lucanian and Calabrian burgs of the Park where the arbëreshë culture is still alive (for instance the "Vallje", dances in traditional Albanian clothing are still performed in occasion of the Carnival). Particularly interesting to visit are: the remnants of the Cistercian Monastery (1195), the Sanctuary of S. Maria del Monte, St. John the Baptist Church, the Church of the Conception and the one of Our Lady of Sorrows. There are also many palaces and other civil buildings to admire. As for nature, particularly beautiful are: Taverna and Finghilisi woods, the specimens of pino loricato in Timpone del Pino, and several springs.
