Important rice production centre (as a matter of fact a variety of rice is named after it), this village is supposed to have Roman origins.
The village had an evocative castle of which there is only the ruins of a perimeter wall left, a cylindrical corner tower, some walls and, mainly, the ancient stronghold, with its dovetail merlons and pointed arch single-laced windows framed in fired ceramics.
The Saint Martinparish (1769) is interesting for its round layout. It was built with classical shapes and its façade is made of simple geometrical shapes. Also the sixteenth century frescoes, kept in the nearby Oratory of Saint Sebastian, are interesting.
