    The church is dedicated to the Saints Giacomo and Anna. It dates back to 1832 and was built on the site of an old oratory that had been erected in 1736. The building has a Greek cross plan and the central dome features fascinating paintings depicting the four evangelists; the church houses an old organ probably made by Verati and a number of paintings made in 1620. The bell tower features a hand made clock, made with heavy stones. The church houses some precious art works, such as a hand made silver monstrance made in 1893, a canvas depicting the Beata Vergine "Fiorera" painted in 1600 and the portrait (made in 1944) of Don Giuseppe Mazzoli, who was the local priest for more than three decades.
