It is a walled hill town, with a 13th-century Romanesque cathedral called Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and a massive castle, built by the Caetani family. The Cistercian Valvisciolo Abbey is located nearby. The churches of San Giuseppe (mainly 16th century) and San Michele (mainly 12th century) still stand.
In the 13th-16th centuries, it was home to a flourishing Jewish community.
An episode of Return of the Saint was filmed there and the town was known as Santa Maria.
