Overlooked by the Parish Church of San Leonardo built on the site of the seventeenth century oratory dedicated to San Rocco, it is rich in buildings with portals, eaves, jambs and tooled sandstone windows. In Porciglia there is an oratory dating to the seventeenth – eighteenth centuries with bell gable and quatrefoil window, dedicated to San Giovanni. Nearby, there is a large doorway leading to an underpass with round arch, pointed quoin and architrave decorated with two human heads in bas-relief. Popular tradition attributes this complex to a Benedictine convent.
