This small, delightful church is thought to have been built before the 13th Century. It was restored by the Malvezzi family in 1450 and in 1725 they instructed the architect Dotti to completely reconstruct this sanctuary. The bell tower was designed by Angelo Venturoli and was built in 1795. The exterior of the church is very sober and is built in a classical style. Inside, there is a single nave with four side altars decorated with works by Crespi and Pedrini. The vaulted ceiling is frescoed with sublime images by Michele Mastellari and Napoleone Angiolini.
