Among gardens antique flavor, fountains, wash houses and mills it reaches the tower, located in the street, from which front wall protrudes a basket of wrought iron. It hung, it is said, the heads of the condemned. The mystery of the tower persists today. Most argue that this is a signal tower was built by the terrible Castruccio Castracani, lord of Lucca in the early fourteenth century: from the top, they say, were leaving messages "fire" into the valley and towards the city not far. Following is the village church, which stands on a high rocky, simple and impressive.

The villas at the Borgo

The garden was built by Francesco Maria Borrini in 1817, when it was completed the construction of the road leading up to St. Andrew Task. In 1830 she was implanted by his sons, Angelo and Alessandro, a large collection of camellias. To this he devoted himself mainly Angelo Borrini, ophthalmologist of the Duke of Lucca, Charles Louis de Bourbon. Since it had a great passion for this plant from exotic origins and maintaining relationships with leading gardeners of the time, he was able to enrich its collection of more and more rare and special. Even today, these can be admired during their blooms and often are the subject of study for specialists and enthusiasts of camellias.

Villa Giovannetti

It situated in the place called the Bridge dates back to the eighteenth century and is a classic example of a country residence where the lords of Lucca spent their summer. Spread over four floors and located in a huge park of centuries old camellias, is accompanied by a small but valuable building in neo-Gothic style, the limonaia. Villa are visible on the facade of the two arms of the family symbol, a cypress folded but strong, a symbol of strength, Aeolus, the god of the wind, and a comet.

Villa Bears

More than two hundred years by the Orsi family, this old house has now been transformed into villas, while maintaining the style and features of the villas of Lucca. Among the many attractions of the beautiful back garden boasts a monumental camellias of different varieties in the secular age. These include unique varieties such as "Violacea superb" the "Drouard Gouillon" and "Madame Pépin".
The garden currently has over eighty ancient camellias large.

Villa Torregrossa

In 1795 it was set to a driveway leading to the camellia family chapel. Unfortunately some of these were cut in the period between the wars. Now a descendant, Guido Cattolica, animated by the same passion of the ancestor, has created a permanent collection of camellias. He played all the old cultivar of the gardens of the villa Borrini and has competed in artificial hybridization experiments lasting over thirty years. These have allowed him to get over a hundred new cultivars of camellia, which have been given names of historical figures or people of the place and the family.
