It’s a parish church, built in 1635 to replace the Church of St. Anthony from Padua, currently disappeared and that was previously located within the castle walls.
A Renaissance style portal opens on the wide façade. It has one single nave with a square presbytery.
There are nine wooden altars of the 17th and 18th century and among them eight ones are along the sides of the nave and were donated by the noble families of the village. Furthermore there is a high altar devoted to St. Carlo Borromeo with the wooden statues of St. Macario and St. Rocco on both sides. The high altar is surmounted by a big crucifix with two angels. The base of the right column of the high altar and the chancel carry the emblem of the “Congregation of Landowners”, that will later become the emblem of the Poggiodomo Municipality.
