The Church of San Michele is mentioned for the first time in 795 with the title ad foro since it was built in the ancient Roman forum.
The church is ideally as well as physically in the heart of the ancient Roman town. It is a basilica with three aisles, transept and semicircular apse; the nave is supported by arches resting upon monolithic pillars and the whole building is covered by barrel vaults with lunettes. The bell tower is above the southern transept. The outside of the church is distinguished by a high ribbed and richly sculpted façade; the walls are mainly of perfectly squared limestone blocks.
