However, the present structure was begun in the twelfth century, in the thirteenth century, the church has been equipped with a new facade, while the high bell tower was completed only in 1330.
Over the following centuries the church has been changed internally with fillings and decorations of the Baroque style, eliminated during the nineteenth-century restoration. Hariportato that the church to its original Romanesque appearance.
On the back of the church there is a large semi-circular apse, overlooking Piazza Grande, decorated with blind arches and round-headed lancet windows that give light and inside the crypt.
