Historical notes

The original structure of the church, probably dating back to the 11th century, must had been similar to the present one but incorporated into the castle.
The entrance reserved to the feudal lord was internal, while the faithful entered from a door located on one side.
Renovated in the XIX century, the church has a large and luminous façade, divided by pilasters, liturgically oriented from east to west.
The church, with three naves divided by pillars, contains two polychrome plaster frontals and an octagonal baptismal font in Verona marble with rosettes and shields.
The XV-century tower has undergone several renovations. On the first floor of the bell tower, there is a fresco depicting Madonna and Angels, dated back to the Middle Ages.
