  • The Church of 1300, was built by the Confraternita dei Battuti which, a few years earlier, had already built a hospital and home for pilgrims, the sick and needy. It was originally in Romanesque-Gothic style and is now more in Baroque style. Externally, seeing there is the stone portal and coat of arms of the Confraternita dei Battuti, with index and middle finger raised and cartouche. On the lintel was engraved the Gospel invitation: "Parades viam domini". The Bell Tower is from the end of 1400. The plan is rectangular, with a single nave. Beautiful frescoes on the ceiling of the mid 1700. Depict the Alms, the assumption of the Virgin and the beheading of Saint John. The author wanted to reproduce the style of frescoes by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo and used the sketches that the master had prepared for the duomo di San Daniele. Interesting gallery. The imposing high altar, beautiful colored marble, has behind him a fresco of the Crucifixion, come to light at a later date. Very particular two paintings, the adoration of the Magi and the adoration of the shepherds. Interesting the altarpiece representing the visitation of Mary to Elizabeth: 1500 end. To make it even richer artistic amenities there are three altars of 1700, impressive, and a beautiful wooden crucifix. Today the Church is dedicated to the fallen of all wars.

The Church, originally built in Romanesque-Gothic, was consecrated in 1361; in 1487 was enriched with the erection of the Bell Tower and between 1500 and 1746 the Church was subject to later works of reconstruction; in 1875 she was broken up the Gothic arched Loggia, where gathered the people demonstrating against the feudal dominance. Today the Church has a rectangular plan, with a single Hall and Baroque style; the frescoes on the ceiling (1746) represent the assumption of the Virgin, Almsgiving and the beheading of St. John and were made by Giuseppe Buzzi, which reproduced frescoes by Tiepolo preserved in the Cathedral of Saint Daniel of Friuli. The altar in polychrome marble is placed in front of the fresco of the crucifixion, unearthed at a later date; This work, created by a French painter of the 15th century, masterfully expresses all the drama of the scene.

To further enrich the sacred building, while still maintaining the simplicity of the environment has three altars and a wooden crucifix carved eighteenth-century finely made Giacomo, Honest.
