Built in 854 the first church was destroied in 11th century for a larger one due to several pilgrims on the Franchigena road coming from several country.
The facade we see today was add in 13th century covering the ancient portico.
On this facade it's possible to see many bas-reliefs with grotesque forms.
Inside with three naves very simple

Named for the first time in 854 , this old parish church is one of the ancient in Parma diocese.
In the middle of the XI century a church with a nave, two side aisles and three apses was built : this structure is the base of the building of today. A few decades later, a frontal portico was added in order to offer rest to the pilgrims of the francigena road , it was then closed and inserted into the church.
I can’t see the inside because found closed.
The Roman style façade is very simple, note the many bas-reliefs on the portal and on the walls, many are the remains of the eleventh-century pulp dismembered in the sixteenth century.
