The town originates from the Benedictine abbey, which was built here in the eleventh century along the road to the following pass, called the Muraglione. The abbey church is an outstanding example of Romanesque architecture, containing valuable works of art, including a beautiful wooden statue of Saint Sebastian; in the crypt is the urn containing the remains of San Godenzo. The municipal territory is wooded and solitary, dominated by the imposing Mount Falterona; in a green valley at the foot of the mountain is Castagno d'Andrea, birthplace of the painter Andrea del Castagno.
