A village of medieval origin, which developed around the Basilian monastery of San Michele founded by Count Roger the Norman, in the upper part of the modern town. It became a famous center in the 15th century because of the local production of silk, which particularly enriched two families: one of these, the Amato family, created its own chapel in 1593 in the baroque Chiesa dei Santa Filippo and Giacomo.

Churches (Patti Diocese) include the following:

Santa Maria (Chiesa Madre)
Chiesa dei Santa Filippo and Giacomo (historic)
Maria SS. Della Stella
San Michele
S. Orsola
