  • Built in an area of worship frequented since prehistoric times and witnessed by the discovery of seven stone statues and numerous relics from the iron age, the Church is mentioned for the first time indirectly by sigeric, Archbishop of Canterbury, on his journey to Rome at the end of the 10th century, establishing then a must see for the many pilgrims traveling along the Via Francigena. The building is an architectural masterpiece of Romanesque, even more enhanced by poor source of building material made of pebbles collected from the river Magra and skillfully composed; particular is the Bell Tower, square and squat, which betrays a purpose more defensive than religious. On the front there is a poly-lobed rose window, while the Interior Stern and Dim, with large arches on double ring resting on round pillars engraved capitals with very short, has many medieval elements, as well as two original stone statues (Sorano Sorano I and V). Finally a necropolis dating from the iron age and Roman farm located behind the Church and the medieval structures merged to the Church, they understand the important strategic position of its location. To avoid the disappointment of finding the closed building you should contact the parish or municipality of Filattiera.

  • For those who take the strada statale Cisa crossing the plain of Filattiera meeting with the parish church of Sorano, emerging solemn and elegant at the side of the road, it's like a light. The pebbles collected from the river Magra and expertly woven together have given rise to an extraordinary architectural masterpiece, still fascinating witness of the distant medieval splendor. Outside of the parish the grey sandstone (which warms and becomes reddish in the sunny afternoons) draws the sober façade and three apses, elegant and slender. Inside, in the semi-darkness broken only by a few and dramatic openings, you can still feel the atmosphere of the Romanesque period, when down the road of Monte Bardone walked by pilgrims, armies and merchants. only problem is difficilmengte open.
