Analytical text:

The church is dedicated to Saints Prospero and Paolo.
In 1538 it appears to have been united with the one of Visiago and in 1593 to Roncolo.
It would appear that the primitive church was located in a place called "old church".
The present day construction consecrated by Cardinal Rangone, dates back to the 18th century.
The new structure presents a carved - stone walling.
In 1707 there's also mention of the presence of a sculpture by Ceccati.
The present day construction is oriented liturgically.
The façade, (hut shaped) has two angular pilaster strips of smooth regular recurrences of carved stone.
The portal, squared and made of sandstone, bears a broken frontispiece and the date "A.P. 1628". On the southern side there's a three lighted small portico reconstructed in 1971.
The interior is hall-shaped with a polygonal apse.
You can clearly distinguish two parts differing stylistically.
The elaborate decoration of the Presbytery and of the apse contrasts with the simplicity and austerity of the nave.
The presbytery and the apse have a barrel vault cover with groins imposed on a Doric order trabeation; the second has a cover with a simple wooden truss ceiling and nude stone walling.
