The Chiesa di S. Bartolomeo, or San Bartolomeo as it is locally known, was founded in the year 840 and is a Catholic church.
This church was first founded in the 9th century and then rebuilt and dedicated to Saint Bartolomeo in the 12th century. The church was again rebuilt in the 18th century to reflect the building standing today. The church avoided suppression from Napoleon, but was closed in the 1980s and reopened briefly as an art gallery. In recent years, the church has again been restored and is now used as a concert hall.
