The Parish Church of San Michele Arcangelo of Bastia Umbra is located in the city center, in Piazza Mazzini.

The monument stands on the same place where once there were two older churches, one dedicated to Saint Anthony and the second to the Good Death. The Church of San Michele Arcangelo was built at the behest of Don Luis Toppetti, then parish priest in the town and designed by architect Antonio Bindelli. The consecration of the monument took place in 1962.

The central bronze door by Umbro Travaglini, and two wooden statues representing the Virgin and the Archangel Michael are noteworthy, as is The Nativity by Flavio Pancheri. The side altarpieces depicting the Sacred Heart and Our Lady of the Rosary, both made by Edgardo Sketch, are of artistic interest. The faithful can see, in the Baptistery, Our Lady of Sorrows by Vincenzo Rosignoli and Christ Crucified.
