This church is a good place to visit with plenty of info on the plague that struck the village. The church is beautiful inside and what you would expect in a village setting.

We were told it was a beautiful church and we were not disappointed. It was full of information about the residents affected by the plague. Frescos visible above the nave. A stained glass window recently dedicated to the plague.
