Medieval times where rough: villages where often built in naturally defensive sites, or had fortifications. Perched villages in the area have very much kept their timeless feeling due to old stones and stringent building and renovation norms. The bell tower is also remarkable with their transparent ironwork top, you can spot them from a distance.
