Description

In the south wall of the parish church dedicated to St. Paio, there is a medieval stone epigraph (IN ERA MCLXXXIII. X CALENDAS MAGII ABAS SAURIUS FUNDAVIT OPERA ISTA MER) related to the foundation of this church and that, according to popular tradition, this place would have been chosen to erect a monastery.
The facade, facing the west, exudes the architectural taste of the time. The source of inspiration is the neo-Baroque end of the century, visible in the granite awarded foliage, drapery, rings and angels.

Underneath the Lady, the year of its construction: 1898. round off the shaft, a capital of Doric type surmounted by a base, profusely decorated, which is based on Christ crucified. Among the various decorative motifs, one can admire some of the most important passages of Christ's life.
