The center is all gathered along a coherent urban frame of terraces overlooking the lake. Along the banks there is a path under the fir trees, equipped for picnics. Beside the lake stands the “Prince of traditional architecture”: the sixteenth-century Palace Centi (now equipped hotel), with its majestic double loggia. In the village, there is the Church of St. John the Baptist, which dates back to the late sixteenth century.

The geomorphological aspect is typical of a great canyon, the largest in the region and one of the most spectacular in Italy.
