The tower of Santa Maria di Luco
The tower of Santa Maria di Luco stands out in a wooded but flat area
Preserved for almost its entire height of 30 metres, the tower has a square base with sides just over 4 metres. The foundations and base are made of large peperino blocks, worked in ashlar, probably belonging to a pre-existing Roman building.
The rest of the tower is of medieval origin.
A Papal bull by Innocent IV from 1244 shows that a Benedictine abbey was built in its vicinity, dedicated to Santa Maria di Luco, but of which no trace remains.
