The Chiesa di S. Samuele Profeta, or San Samuele as it is locally known, was founded in the year 1008 and is a Catholic church.
The church was first built in the 11th century, but required renovation after the 12th century fire. The current building was constructed in the 17th century; however, the façade was updated in the 1950s. The new façade mostly reflects the characteristics of the old one, but also added a porch to the front.
