  • Small church in the Piazzo di Biella, also reachable from the Costa delle Noci, rather steep and direct, from the 13th century. I almost always found it closed but I will have to be able to visit it before I leave the city. Connected to the Via Francigena and the circuit of the churches of the Cammino di Compostella.
  • It is the oldest medieval building preserved in the Piazzo. The building preserved today is the one consecrated in 1227 by Bishop Ugo di Sessa and then remodeled in later times: the bell tower was added later, but is already mentioned in two documents from the late thirteenth to the early fourteenth century; the portico is from the seventeenth century; inside, the burial grounds located under the floor are from the sixteenth century; the stuccos, which cover the medieval structures, date back to 1862. Inside the church are preserved various works of artistic interest: the carved choir (1697/1698), the fifteenth-century triptych by Daniele de Bosis (with the Madonna and Child, the Saints Gottardo and Giacomo with the donor Giacomo Dal Pozzo) and the Baroque Baptistery
