  • The original church was built around 1346 the Confraternita dei Battuti which in 1325 had erected near a hospital, a hospice for needy, poor, pilgrims and the sick. 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. Are also present two paintings: the adoration of the shepherds and the adoration of the Magi and a pair belonging to Gaspare Narvesa, depicting the visitation of Mary to Elizabeth St ' dated 1588. 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. Outside you can admire the stone portal, surmounted by the coat of arms of the Confraternita dei Battuti, with index and middle finger raised, and title block. The architrave is engraved the Gospel invitation: "Parades viam domini". Today the Church is dedicated to the fallen of all wars.
