Analytical text:

Description: The hamlet, situated on the northern tip of Mt Cusna, has an undifferentiated type of urban layout, whose buildings have undergone heavy reconstruction. On the western edge you can see a block of buildings of 19th century style partially re-arranged that retain original architectural features. Amongst these is a noteworthy ogival arch portal with a finely carved keystone and the year 1867. At the entrance of the hamlet there's a construction formed by various united buildings and on the western side of which you can still see a balcony, supported by small full relief sandstone columns, attributable to the XIX century. To the side, in front of a construction which has undergone great modifications, you can see an ogival arch portal and spired keystone bearing the year 1795. The structure is in sandstone, locally extracted, and is finely pebbled. On the western side of the hamlet there's an old mill, now out of use.
