It is best known for the penitential rite held every seven years. The town is dominated by a medieval castle. Most of the historical center is accessible only by foot along narrow, stone, stepped streets and walkways. Much of the old town was vacated, as many locals prefer the new homes and shops that ring the old town, because they are accessible by automobile. Below the town is one of the largest cooperative wineries in Europe; it produces both Guardiolo and Sannio wines with Falanghina and Aglianico as the primary grapes; the area is also a major olive producing region. Guardia hosts a riti settennali di penitenza or penitential rite every seven years; the rite honors the discovery of a Madonna and Child statue found in a field hundreds of years ago.

Everything happens since centuries and it is the largest self-punishment rite in the Western world. A series of processions starts in the week following the Assumption. The participants join together on the following Sunday for the main procession, when the flagellation occurs. More than thousand men and women dressed in white and wearing hoods to hide their face. Some participants, "flagellanti", strike their backs with small strips of metal chained together. Others, "battenti" tap against their bare chests with disks of cork pierced by needles, creating red patches of raw flesh, and sometimes blood.
