Montedoro is Renaissance village which is well known for its many sulphur mines.

The most important cultural attractions of the village are the Mother Church, built in 1644 and dedicated to Maria Santissima del Rosario with a fascinating Gothic- Renaissance style; the Astronomic Observatory, created in 2004, is located on the top of Mount Ottavio.
