Hill/level ground Cultural/natural/religious point of interest

The building, on a rectangular plan, is arranged around a closed central courtyard with a well. It was erected between the 16th and 17th centuries on the south side of the church. It was initially a Capuchin hospice (1640-1921) and then a parish house.

Torre di S. Maria

Mountain Cultural/natural/religious point of interest

These are the ruins of an old 13th-14th-century fortification. Standing 30 metres tall and set in a strategic position on a rise behind the church, this is an excellent viewpoint. It is pentagonal on the outside and square on the inside, with steps carved out of the thick walls. It is one of the few examples in Rhaetia of a tower in the style typical of those of central and northern France.
