There are a few things to see in Gravinia but it is nearly impossible to find them. Otherwise a very ugly and busy town.

whether you want river neolithic remnants, subterranean caves or churches, castle in the vicinity, farmlands, historic settlements- there it is for you. Alta Murga National Park and Silgion in the vicinity. Fine local food, small hotels - an underexplored location
