Description:
There's been information regarding the church of Sant' Apollinare since 1229, a church dependent on the Parish of Castelnovo nè Monti. The building, which in 1664 was in good condition, faces east to west wit ha nave structure and doesn't have any particularly noteworthy features. The façade, having an exposed stone surface with alternating angular ashlars, has a recent portal with barrel arch. The double-weathered roof has the squat bell tower next to it; the latter has a wide bell cell. The building occupies a line of hillside, which has a very interesting landscape from where you can see most of the surrounding territory. Construction period: before 1229.
