With a great grain tradition, it is still considered a minor ‘wheat capital’ to this day. Guasila is a town with 2,700 inhabitants, positioned on the sweet and fertile hills of the Trexenta subregion, which characterise the landscape. The urban structure is typical, with manor houses bearing imposing portals. At the highest point of the town, visible from miles away, stands the parish church of the Beata Vergine Assunta, constructed between 1842 and 1852 based on a design by Gaetano Cima. With a neoclassical feel, it follows the style expressed on numerous occasions by the famous architect, having an octagonal layout, from which powerful columns rise up to support the majestic dome.
