Situated in a zone of exceptional landscape interest it offers a unique view of the ancient marble quarries and the Mount Altissimo on one side, and the sea on the other. The church is built completely in marble. Built before the year 1000AD, it was retouched in the XII century: the bell tower is detached and stands in front of the façade and is from before the XI century. The façade was then embellished by a colonnade (finished in 1538), whose capitals seem to have been designed by Michelangelo, to whom tradition also attributes the rose window called “The Eye of Michelangelo”. Unfortunately the colonnade was destroyed during the Second World War. The interior has 3 rectangular naves and marble altars that date back to the XVII century.
