The entire region was theatre of many battles after the end of the Roman Empire. Different conquerors from south and north had tried to put their hands on this rich and strategic region.
Today it is possible to admire the result of these different dominations thanks to the many well preserved churches, castles and palaces built during the centuries. The styles varies from Romanesque and Gothic to Renaissance and Baroque.
