First documented in 1251 and enlarged between the 15th and 16th centuries, it was destroyed in 1846 by a devastating earthquake and immediately rebuilt. Today the building has a simple Neo-Classical façade divided by three blind arches with portals. The interior is divided into a nave and two side aisles.
At the end of the right-hand aisle is a fine painted terracotta relief representing the venerated image of the Madonna del Soccorso (Our Lady of Succour). On the opposite side is the polychrome marble Altar of the Crucifix, dating from the 18th century.
