The remarkable church of Santa Maria Vecchia is situated just outside the walls of Ficulle. Until the end of the 16th century it was the parish church.
The typical Gothic façade shows a beautiful 13th century portal. The entrance is raised and accessible via a double staircase. The church has been restored. Inside are frescos of the 14th and 15th centuries, two wooden statues of Santa Cristina and an Assumption of the sixteenth century and an interesting Roman memorial stone which has the representation of the god Mithras. The columns have remarkable capitals with High Middle Ages reliefs.
