What we see now is the church built in 1928 but the history of the previous churches, still in this place dates back to at least 1210. The first church was demolished and rebuilt bigger in 1535 but it had a short life, in fact in 1660 it was demolished and rebuilt even bigger. But this too was redone as we see it today in new renaissance style . The original tower bell is dated 1787 and luckily it resisted the schizophrenia of the parishes and bishop that left it in peace. The bricks of the bell tower are shown in the upper part of the facade, the lower is in gray stone. Inside with three naves with the huge central nave, the octagonal presbytery is beautiful as the octagonal dome. The baptismal font is dated 1600 , in this font the Saint of the city , Francesca Cabrini , was baptized in 1850
