The star of a legendary love story, a place devoted to the church with a lively cultural atmosphere tied to tradition

In the upper Argentina Valley is a hill dotted with olive trees. A picturesque, ancient village with alleys, narrow stone houses squashed together, archways, underpasses like the one under the incredibly tall campanile of San Giovanni Battista. The Loggia degli Sposi is so famous that even foreigners come here to get married. Romanticism seeps through the pores of this place. Walk just outside the city walls and you’ll discover the Romanesque-Gothic parish church of San Giorgio. Here you can enjoy cultural events dedicated to music and celebrations in the sanctuary of the Madonna dell’Acquasanta, site of a miraculous spring.
