Description
According to tradition the current church of San Giacomo derives from the antique oratory of the same name.
The building has a façade facing east and is hut-shaped, defined by angular pilaster strips and by a superior frontispiece. The bell tower, mono-fore cell, rises next to the northern side. In the building next to the rectory you can see a 17th century open gallery. The hamlet is made up of an antique complex of the Cavalletti, now partially restored, enlarged and used as a hospice for the elderly.
Behind the master's building there's a small court dominated by a rustic construction with tower house and an oratory. The tower, dating back to the 16th century, is based on a square plan with three levels and dovecot.
The 18th century oratory, now reduced to a rustic building, is dedicated to the presentation of the Virgin Mary.
