An analysis of the Leopoldian Cadastre suggests that the planimetric design of the Castello del Belagaio, which written documents confirm belonged to the counts Ardengheschi in the twelfth century, can be considered the only example of nineteenth-century restoration to have involved an entire complex. The little church, dedicated to San Leonardo, has a single nave and an elegant façade with a door crowned by an ogival arch which rests on top of jutting shelves, moulded to a convex form. The upper part of the church face is characterised by a slim bell-gable, inside which a double-arched window is bisected by a central column.
Stratigraphic analysis reveals the complex to be the result of a single construction effort, which means that there are no anomalies, at least no visible ones, in the walling technique, despite the eighteenth-century reports that the building was in a dire condition. From contemporary studies of the masonry, we can deduce that the complete renovation of the complex, begun around the end of the nineteenth century, involved a reconstruction which utilised building materials from the previous church edifice.
