Description
The church of San Pietro was included in 1302 among the churches dependent on the Parish of San Vitale in Carpineti. In 1543 it was in bad condition and needed restoration work and again in 1664. Afterwards it was restored and a rectory was added. The church is north of the village. It has a sloping façade and is oriented liturgically. The wide portal with relief cornice architrave is surmounted by a semi-circular window. The interior has a nave with three altars. The bell tower with squared single-light window cell on the southern side of the church. Following an earthquake in the second half of the 1900's, which damaged the cover, restoration work was done.
