All around, the embrace of a countryside that from the sides, the terraces supported by dry stone walls that over the centuries have taken from the mountain precious flat patches of land to be cultivated, sends the silvery reflections of the olive groves and the green of the precious Rossese vines. up to the densest masses of chestnut and pine trees on the highest hills.
The appearance and the current dimensions are those of the late sixteenth century, with the central core, the oldest, two-three hundred.
