The old town retains much of its ancient structure and there are many traditions, culinary events and torchlight processions, celebrated each year. There are many structures of architectural note to admire. These include both churches and palaces together with the ruins of a Roman aqueduct, floors of Roman houses and a nearby, fortified, castle. The town boasts a public swimming pool and has numerous facilities including bars, mini-markets, post office, butcher and restaurants including the Michelin starred ‘La Bandiera'.
The immediate area is surrounded by the cultivation of olive trees. The harvested olives are used in the production of extra-virgin olive oil which is renowned for excellent and natural qualities, due to its position in the foothills, away from pollution and contamination.
