The church of Santa Maria Assunta, near the baronial castle of Maenza was restored in 1856, at the behest of Pope Leo XIII and has neoclassical lines. The facade is characterized by a large portico with four columns with Ionic capitals and a pediment with the coat of arms of the Pecci. The façade is characterized by its bell towers being visible from a distance.

The interior has three naves and the church ends with an apse where you can admire the painting of the Assumption of Mary. Of particular interest is a fresco of the Madonna delle Cerase, a triptych depicting the Virgin and Child Enthroned with cherries, and some paintings depicting St. Thomas, St. Augustine and St. Rocco.
