the village can be approached. Inside the church the visitor can admire peculiar wall paintings, those, of course, that were able to be saved by the newest interventions and coatings. Very old pictures of great historical value are in functional use in the church and carry on the faith and the religion of the inhabitants, as they are laden with vows, particularly the picture of Holy Mary. If you raise your head you will see the large women"s loft, in which the women of the village worship, so as not to come in contact with men. It is a remnant of an earlier perception and expression of another form of life. However, an excellent sample of architecture and the people"s religiosity. At the belfry apart from the big bells, wonderful construction, a large pendulum mechanism clock which was built in the late 19th century, is kept in excellent condition until today. If you look beneath the narrow and long wooden canopy that protects the internal belfry you will be seen that two huge stones that go up and down every time the priest winds the clock are hanging. The Church celebrates on the fifteenth of August and a great authentic and folk feast is held until today.
