Main sights[edit]

Villa Albergoni seen from the main road (2011).
  • The parish church of St. Peter was built between 1797 and 1801 in a style that already turns to the neoclassical; numerous paintings by Mauro Picenardi and fresco by Angelo Bacchetta
  • The oratory of St. Charles Borromeo, built in the late 50s and later equipped with a sacristy.
  • The oratory of San Donato, near a group of farmhouses, already existing in the 16th century but rebuilt in 1708
  • Sanctuary of the Madonna dei Prati, a place of worship of uncertain history, dating probably before 1483
  • Villa Albergoni, a 17th-century mansion. It was the main set in the 2017 film Call Me by Your Name[4][5][6][7]
  • Villa Groppelli, late neoclassical style villa on the edge of an English park
  • Villa Marazzi, country house probably already existing in 1650, but the current appearance derives from a renovation carried out in the 18th century
