This charming hamlet, built between the 17th and 19th centuries, is nestled in a corner sheltered from the winds amid centuries-old chestnut trees, at the foot of Mount Calvi’s rugged western slope. There are a number of large stone houses, partly in ruins, featuring typical rural mountain architectural elements (sandstone door and window frames, stone-slated roofs, votive niches). Lacking running water and electricity, the hamlet is currently uninhabited. You can still see the old kiln, a wash house and a charming stone wayside shrine flanked by the evergreen leaves of box shrubs on the trail leading to the village. An ancient oratory with adjacent rectory and a small cemetery shaded by a large cherry tree are located on a raised position with a panoramic view over the valley.
