The Church

The Romanesque style chapel was built in the 12th century in Finale white stone. The best preserved part is the apse, where it is important to note the elegance and care in the execution of the arches and single lancet windows that adorn it. The north side with a Romanesque portal with a double turn of ashlars is still intact, while the south side and the facade have been rebuilt. Underneath the building there is a crypt partly excavated in the rock where the masonry altar of the primitive construction is preserved, although damaged. From the bottom there is access to a tunnel, now partially collapsed, where it is said that on the day of the Saint, the women of the Finale went to have news of their husbands or children who were far away. The chapel was damaged by the earthquake of 1887 and restored two years later. Now it has been in a state of neglect for several years.
