Archaeological excavations have brought to light Gaulish, Gallo-Roman and Etruscan remains. In the outskirts of the village there are ruins of a fortification, probably of Lombard origin.

The village is mentioned in the "Liber Cleri" as dependent of the parish church of San Giulio di Orta in 1133.

The current church was built in 1661 over the foundations of the preceding Romanesque one. It has paintings by Luigi Scaramuccia, Giorgio Bonola and Federico Bianchi, and frescos by Luca Rossetti.
