- The castle
Along with the church of St. Bernard, make sure to visit the castle, which is a cultural monument. At the entrance to the building, right above the door, there is a text in Latin: “In you, Lord, I put my trust.” The castle was built by Bernardo who was an aristocrat from the noble Borisi family. It was built in 1610 in the Renaissance style and it was rebuilt in the Baroque period when window openings were added. This is the first place the people started to inhabit (the inhabitants started building homes around it). Although taking a tour of the interior of the castle is not available, the site itself is certainly worth a visit.
