- Church of San Michele, in the frazione of Casale, built probably over a Roman edifice. Notable is the apse, with panels having high-reliefs with symbolic decorations in Romanesque style (12th century).
- Church of San Gianni in Vecchio, in the frazione San Gianni. Known from 1297, it includes a pre-existing, pre-Romanesque church with a nave and an apse. It has a square bell tower with mullioned windows.
- Pieve di San Pancrazio (9th-10th century), built over the Roman Curia Augusta. Of the original medieval edifice the crypt survives, with walls decorated by blind arches and columns and High Middle Ages sculptures. The Romanesque apse is from the 12th century, while the façade was remade in the late 17th century and the two aisles were suppressed in 1784. Notable is also the sandstone altar (1259) supported by a Roman cippus (374)
