Parish church, classified Historical Monument , it was completed around 1700 on the site of an old medieval church very damaged in the seventeenth century. Imbued with the regional baroque context of the time, its design is extremely original.
It is a pure baroque jewel! Its facade, rather narrow, gives it an accentuated aspect of verticality. Built according to a plan in the shape of a Greek cross with four equal arms, its centered plan is characteristic of Baroque art in its purest form.
The baroque decoration of the church was carried out gradually after its construction. Stucco, gypseries and woodwork during the eighteenth century. The frescoes adorning the vaults and the dome around 1860.
Pilasters with Corinthian capitals...
