A very nice church although for important events it needs more seating. It should be visited.
The construction dates back presumably to the FOURTEENTH century, as can be inferred from citations contained in an inventory of 1396. The entrance was originally placed in the west, as evidenced by the large rose window in finely carved stone. It underwent a first enlargement between end ' 400 and beginning ' 500 of which remains the original presbytery with apse with ten niches, dedicated to St. Anthony of Padua, with frescoes of episodes of the life of the saint. At the turn of the ' 700 and the 800 were other structural interventions, such as the displacement of the longitudinal axis with the opening of the portal on the main street, the construction of a large octagonal dome and buttresses on the prospect to improve the static. The interior is a single nave with side chapels and vaulted vaults. On the main altar is an eighteenth-century painting of the Neapolitan school depicting the Last supper.
