The farm house of Podere Tegline is of quite ancient origin. During restoration, the remains of an ancient Longobard (Lombard) watch tower were discovered forming part of the walls of the current tower apartment of Podere Tegline. In addition, the farm is identified by name on the famous map of the Captains of the Guelph Party, dated 1584.
