To visit the fortress with its semicircle shape and in the middle a tower with a drawbridge. Then there is the castle of Liteggio, of medieval origin, which is located in the homonymous locality on the edge of the inhabited center. Parts of crenellated masonry and the moat are still visible, details that made it a very powerful fortification. Also worthy of a visit is the parish church of Santa Maria Assunta.
