Its origins date back to before 1000 AD. Born from the construction of the chapel in honor of San Quirico, it soon became an agricultural center of considerable importance. In 1997 a small protected natural area called “Bosco del Bottaccio della Visona” was established on the territory which was designed to protect the flora and fauna of the area.
