The Roman fort of Sibrium, known today as Castelseprio or Castel Seprio, became a significant Lombard town of the early Middle Ages. It was destroyed and abandoned in 1287. In 2011, the site, including the church of Santa Maria 'foris portas', the castrum and its Torba Tower, was enrolled as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
