Today's church was built with a single nave in 1725 on the remains of a previous structure collapsed for unknown reasons. Preserves in the third altar on the right side a statue of the Immaculate, attributed to Anton Maria Maragliano, in the fourth altar on the left a Byzantine Crucifix and a canvas represents Our Lady of the Graces. The local painter Luca Cambiaso is instead worked on the Last Supper conserved in the sacristy.
