    This beautiful church dates back to after the big fire in 1877. During the last renovation fragments, a small crypt, frescoes and coins from varies time periods were found, estimating that the original church goes back to the 6/7th century.

    The Roman bell tower is from the 12th century. Take a look inside if you find it the church open as parts of the old altar can still be seen that survived the fire.
