Built at the end of the 18th century, due to the actions of Bourbon survey and allocation of vacant lands, the settlement was developing according to a orthogonal system around the Sanctuary of the Madonna. After 1948 it became autonomous.
Nearby you can visit the Scurati cave, within which there is a real village, with houses and streets, served as a bomb shelter during the Second World War and home to a charming Living Nativity that there is held every year during Christmas holidays. This cave in summer becomes a museum with living characters, who represent the ancient crafts.
