At the beginning of XV century became a possession of the Orsini family that transformed the stronghold in the present castle. In 1496 the territory was besieged from the troops of Pope Alexander VI. The convent of Saint Maria Novella, that nowadays accommodates the Civic Museum and the Comunale Historical Archives and the bastion "la Sentinella" represent the most beautiful historical sites of the zone.
