The mountain territory on the Village of Loro, ever changing and charming in its natural landscapes, shows the sign of a human settlement of medieval origins perfectly integrated with the surrounding environment. The fortified castle of Loro is situated on a sunny coast straight down the Ciuffenna stream that in this point flows in a deep rocky gorge. The centre was based on a crossing axis that originated from its gates, one of which used to be upstream of the still visible medieval bridge, the other by another bridge on a stream that does not exist anymore. The part of the built area situated upstream was dominated by the castle, the one downstream was made up of a dense cluster of buildings. There are numerous architectural traces dating back to the Middle Ages; for instance mention is made of the Church of S. Maria Assunta of the 13th century and the characteristic Romanesque bridge with the typical pointed stone arcade. Near the Town-hall there is the Venturino Venturi Museum, after the sculptor and painter born in Loro on 1918. The museum was opened in 1993 and gathers both paintings and sculptures, some inspired by war events and others by the local cultures and the land
