  • Little church near the bus stop, market, center, school and town walls.. You can go in and watch how preserved it is.

  • The first documents that testify the presence of the church date back to the mid-late sixteenth century (1557), but its current baroque appearance is due to the restructuring that took place in the seventeenth century. The interior, with a single nave, has a stucco-decorated ceiling, a marble altar from the mid-eighteenth century, the work of the Italian sculptor Bettini, while the golden canopy (above the altar) dates back to the nineteenth century, and is the work of the Piranese Zarotti. Near the entrance, a stoup in Orsera stone from 1662 deserves attention. A small church "squeezed" between parked cars and buildings from various eras ... I would say interesting, but not unmissable ... N.B .: the church is visible through a protective grate
  • Nice little church, rather simplistic, only limited pomp. The exterior facade also testifies to simplicity. Magnificent Baroque is the ceiling fresco and the altar of marble (show) with the golden "crown" and the three figures. Unfortunately, like most churches, just look behind lattices from the outside.
