Analytical text:

The rural complex of the XVII -XVIII century, among the most interesting in the municipality thanks to the landscape and the historical-architectural characteristics, has come to us through the centuries unaltered.
The nucleus occupies the peak of an arenaceous relief.
To be pointed out are two tower houses with attached oratory and rural building surrounded by a walled enclosure.
The urbanistic layout is of the court kind with wide paved threshing floor.
The taller tower is characterized by a double-weathered roof subtended by an eave ceiling in relief.
The narrow dovecot is underlined by a brick border and by numerous access windows.
The second tower house has a wide surface layout with four-layered roof.
The tower is sided by a narrow block of buildings where a massive chimney is evident.
The buildings are bordered on the western side by an oratory.
