In 1033 it was enlarged by the marquis of Sezzadio, Oberto, and reached its greatest splendour in the 11th-13th centuries, remaining under the Benedictines until 1474. The church has a large cotto façade divided by pilasters and crowned by Lombard bands. The interior has a nave and two aisles ending with apses. In the apses are frescoes from the 14th-15th centuries, while the crypt has a has an 11th-century mosaic pavement.
