Parrocchiale Santi Pietro e Paolo

This imposing Romanesque church probably dates back to the 12th century. Of special interest is the grand doorway with its stylised lions on the columns, the lunette and the capitals with romanesque sculpture executed by the master crafstman Alertus at the time of Barbarossa, as evidenced by the accompanying Latin inscriptions. Inside there are three large naves which have been restored and re-built over the centuries; of the original building only the SS. Sacramento chapel survives. Most of the building dates back to the end of the 16th century, with the work carried out by Pellegrino Tibaldi. Of the more important works of art which are to be found in the church are a painting of the Last Supper by Alessandro Berri and a 15th century fresco “The Madonna of Mercy”.
