Near to this small village lie the remains of Urbs Salvia. The city was founded in the 1st century BC and, like so many of the Marche's Roman towns, wiped out by Alaric in 408. For once this is an archaeological site with things you can actually see - the amphitheatre, built in the 2nd century AD, is one of the region's most conspicuous Roman ruins.
