This little church, located in a side road leading off the via Indipendenza, is truly unique with its sculpted sandstone fa├žade bearing so many signs of its age. Inside there is a single nave and an altar built by Bibbieno, in 1750. The two large angels on each side of the altar, attributed to Giuseppe Mazza, date from the foundation of the church. Nearby stands Filippo Neri's oratory, built by Torregiani in 1730. Call ahead for hours.
