Description
The church, consecrated in 1618, is dedicated to Santissima Annunziata. A document from 1664 describes it as being in a bad state. The building, of high artistic prestige, is squared –planned with a vast smooth façade on which a finely sculpted sandstone portal surmounted by a worked stone mask opens. A circular window with sandstone cornice defines the tympanum and rises above a finely sculpted phytomorph motif frieze. Separated from the church, to the side of the bell tower, you can see the 19th century rectory bearing on the façade squared lights and stone quadrangular portal. Inside the bell tower, which underwent restoration immediately after WWII, you can visit a permanent exhibition of rural tools and objects.The outside can always be visited, for visits inside the church contact the parish priest.
