At one time there was a small castle on the hill above Refrancore, a drawing of which appears in Codex Astensis. The last remains of the castle were razed in the 19th Century in preparation for the construction of a Church which was never actually built.
What to see
- On the hill near the site of the ancient Castle, a 15th century 'Ricetto' fort which has remained almost entirly intact. Presently it is used as a kindergarten and old peoples home. The Chapel which was part of the fort has been restored.
- In the main square, a clocktower which is all that remains of the 18th Century Parish Church which was demolished at the start of the 20th Century.
