The village, which was the birthplace of the mother of the musician and composer Antonio Vivaldi and today hosts an important music festival dedicated to him, stands on a very fertile territory rich in orchards, vineyards and olive groves. Its origins are certainly ancient, so much so that several archaeological finds from the Greek-Hellenistic age have been discovered in the surroundings. Several religious buildings, such as the Church of San Michele Arcangelo patron of the village, the Church of Sant’Antonio da Padova annexed to the ancient convent and the Church of San Rocco, all dating back to the Baroque period. Also noteworthy is the Palazzo Marchesale while, for nature lovers, an essential stop is the Manferrara wood, where it is possible to admire various species of flora and fauna, including the rare royal woodpecker.
