The modern aspect of the Parish Church of Codiponte, dedicated to the Saints Cornelio and Cipriano, is due to the restoration done during the XIX century, which eliminated the traces of decorations made after the Romanesque period.
The church, probably, stands on a roman village, which was important on the Luni-Lucca route. The most interesting part of the church is the sculptural decoration on the capitals, typical of the Lombard and Carolingian Ages.
Together with this wonderful decoration, we find also typical elements of the romanesque style.
