Over the centuries the center was a feud of some families of which remains a witness in the Baronial Palace, an ancient Norman fortress, restored several times over the years. The houses and streets are positioned in such a way as to facilitate the flow of rainwater and sewage downstream, preventing the formation of unsightly puddles in the streets, as now made of pebbles and stones. Masses so the houses are lit throughout the day, painted white absorb less heat from the sun, and to deal with icy winds in winter, the houses are built next to each other protecting. They still see the remains of ancient walls that protected the residential units gathered around the Baron's Palace, also called the House, which was the gateway of the city.

Base for submarines and seaplanes during the war, the lake is now one of the main resources of the country. The economy is based primarily on fishing and tourism is developing.
