The village square has a fountain made in 1825 by two englishmen Lord Sandon and Lady Bule. They passed long periods in “Villa Politi” in the middle of the village. From 1950 Villa Politi belonged to the nuns “Barbantine” . The Politi family is remembered in the 16th century as silk merchants,and in the 18th century decided to built the palace with a garden which contains a maze and a centuries old ash-tree. From the garden one can see all the thermal hills of Bagni di Lucca.
