  • Interesting Church outside and inside, although the more austere and spiritual atmosphere Romanesque Interior, with an excellent preservation of architectural structures of 1100. The exterior is instead of 1500 in Florentine style and the two sides left and right are of 1400 and 1800; Instead, the Bell Tower dates from the 13th century.
