This hamlet is surrounded by important castles and forts. Its tower, one of the most considerable evidences of mountain medieval architecture, overlooked the Niviano slope, obove a steep landscape. It functioned as an important link between Monteobizzo, Gaiato, Lavacchio and Verica. The church of Verica, recently remodelled, is placed at the foot of the mountain, where now the old tower, dedicated to S.Margherita of Antiochia, rises. The villages of Masana di Sopra, Masana di Sotto and Il Cerro are also worth visiting.
