The church is located just outside the town centre and dates from the 14th century, and was then expanded in the 16th century. It is built around a small chapel with a fresco sacred image of Our Lady with Child. This fresco is found again near the main altar.

The church has a rectangular plan and inside there are two finely-painted altars of the late 16th century with a style of the first Baroque age. All Baroque paintings come from the school of Cavalier d’Arpino, one of the most important Roman artists from nearby Arpino.

The old main altar was surrounded by four wooden columns on stone basements, that still exist and that formed a canopy cited in the sacred visits of the seventeenth century.

The church is home to the Confraternity of St. Anthony Abate and here the processional carriage is kept with the statue of the saint.
