The church dates back to 1300 and houses the historic effigy of Maria SS. Sorrows the patron of the town. At the church door there is a very ancient fragment of a Lombard Cross (prior to 1000) that remains the oldest memory of the original church. The Our Lady of Sorrows Statue is a masterpiece of art and, according to local tradition, seems to have been carved out of pear wood by a unknown Neapolitan artist of 1400s. Inside, the church is adorned with a cycle of frescoes by the painter Giovanni Bizzoni .
