Surely to visit, is the S. Maria Assunta's Cathedral, built probably on a preceding temple of V century
b.C. in honor to Jupiter; a curiosity is represented by the Mulino Spagnolo at the begin of the "dam" that join the city to the Argentario Mountain.

 

Really interesting is the S. Francesco di Paola church and also the one consecrated to the Madonna delle Grazie (this one finely frescoed).
