Analytical text:

Description: In 1302 it was among the churches dependent on the S. Vitale Parish of Carpineti. During a visit in 1543 it appeared in bad condition. It was rebuilt and probably consecrated at the beginning of the XVII century. Tradition has it that the antique rectory of S. Giacomo became the present-day parochial church. The building has a façade facing east. The façade is the sloping type and is bordered by angular pilaster strips and by an upper frontispiece. The single light window bell tower rises on the northern side. In the building attached to the rectory you can see a 17th century two-lighted open gallery with open gallery with arch on small columns.
