Main sights[edit]

The Castle, erected around 1200 by order of Pope Innocent III, and later reinforced by the Orsini. It had once three line of massive walls, but the siege of Cesare Borgia in 1497 and subsequent earthquakes have reduced the structures in poor state.

It was also the country home of Professor Ernest Nash. It is also a "sailing" town: many clubs offer many possibilities of training.
