The church is of medieval origin and was mentioned for the first time in a document of 1186. The church has undergone a renovation in the sixteenth century and the facade is of late Renaissance style with two rows of columns, crowned by a pediment and a large stained glass window.

The majestic bronze door was sculpted by Tommaso Gismondi, with themes of devotion to Our Lady of Suffrage and the patrons.

The interior has a nave with six chapels, a higher altar and an eighteenth-century carved choir loft from the German Veser. The apse is nineteenth-century by architect Virginio Vespignani, and there are paintings of Sarra, Balbi and Cavalier d’Arpino school.

Inside the church is a wooden statue of Our Lady of the Suffrage of the Lucchese school of the XVI century and the Grand Cross which is carried in processions. The decoration of the church is recent by craftsman Mauti who frescoed on the vault three episodes of the Old Testament.
