Affresco in nicchia.
The hamlet, of exceptional historic and artistic interest, is arranged around a court complex dominated by two massive tower houses imposed in scarp wall fashion on a rocky base. The stone structure with "opus incertum" surface has polished angulars.
Small-corbelled apertures and dovecot windows are recognizable, as are two ogival brick windows on the eastern side, now bunged, and a window with monolithic triangular architecture.
The styles are probably from the XV century.
Also belonging to that century is a fresco in a niche depicting the Madonna with child on the northern side.
On the front threshing floor of the court you can see an antique rustic with portico that has three archivolted windows bearing different finely sculpted ashlars.
