This charmingly named hill top village is an ancient medieval fortified village.

Visit the village and you'll find some interesting and beautiful gothic houses as well as door ways and vaulted passageways dating back to the Middle Ages.

The narrow and often step stepped streets are lined with high houses tightly packed together and lead naturally to the Church square.
