What to see

  • In nearby Usigni, a frazione of the comune of Poggiodomo, a few hundred meters downstream from the source of the Tissino River, the home town of Fausto Cardinal Poli, private secretary to Pope Urban VIII, who built the church of San Salvatore around 1640, richly decorated with stuccos and frescos by Guidobaldo Abatini and Salvi Castellucci.
  • Also in Usigni, an elegant well-head attributed by some to Bernini, which the place adopted as its symbol.
