Description
A document from 1302 names the church of San Lorenzo as being dependent on the Parish of Toano. In 1725 the church results as being built once again, not far from the previous one, which was swept away and destroyed by a landslide a few years earlier. The parochial church overlooks the village and is characterized by a wide façade, which stretches out vertically and faces east, it bears numerous stone ashlars probably belonging to a more antique construction. A squared window at the ground level of the bell tower, bears the year "1595" surmounted by a Bernardian symbol.
