Under different names, such as Avigno, Agrigno and Lagogna (which suggests a link to the word "lago" or lake), the settlement has been referred to since the times of Matilde di Canossa.
Of interest is Leguigno Castle of which a modest portion of the central part remains. It is framed by two four-sided towers that can be seen from afar.
Entry is not permitted, but the walls, as well as a part of the internal gardens, can be seen.
