Of importance is Brown castle, an ancient military fortress positioned at the entrance of the cove. It is thought that the castle was built around the 10th century and because of its strategic position it was many times subject to siege and seizure by Saracen pirates up to the early 15th century.

Excavations in the area have uncovered ruins of a watch tower of the roman period dating back to the second or third century BC.

The structure standing today dates back to 1425. It has been the property of the town since 1961 and has undergone restructure; it is now the seat of various cultural events. The splendid garden is rich in rose gardens and all kinds of flowers; most interesting are the many pergola vine trainings.

The church of San Giorgio is a small place of worship built on a cliff overlooking the cape. Inside are preserved some precious paintings.
