The remains of the small Poggio Forte are found in an area near Gerano. You can still see the foundations of the houses and places of common burial of a fort destroyed in 1128 by Peter IV.

Not far away was Tellarum Vico, the first village of Gerano to where in the sixth century the population had fled to escape the attacks of the Barbarians.

In both cases, the survivors took refuge in Gerano after the destruction of their villages.
