Fortified in ancient times Puria was an important road junction in the valley. The route from Como which met with the mule-tracks coming from the valleys of Sanagra, Cavargna, Colla (CH), Rezzo (”Passo Stretto”) converged here, as well as the mule-tracks from Castello, Brè and the upper zones of the Lugano area. Here the ”Treasure of Emperor Mauritius” was discovered: a store of byzantine coins belonging to the end of the 6th century.
It was also a market centre. The village boasts some beautiful patrician houses and notable fountains.

Towards the end, it widens and continues straightforward for about 50 metres taking the name of Via del Tempio as far as the square of the Parish Church of the Assumption , at the facade of which the road ends.
