The sacred building probably dates back to the twelfth century, as evidenced by the side portal, which originally constituted the entrance, characterized by triple ogival arch and bas-relief of Agnus Dei.
So originally the access to the church was from the Rione di Terravecchia. During the eighteenth century, the building was enlarged and its plan rotated: the presbytery was upside down with the addition of a room adjacent to the ancient body of factory. A new entrance was also built, aimed at the new urban expansion of the village. To bridge the difference in level between the high gate, access to the medieval district of Terravecchia, and the interior of the Church were built a connecting staircase and a loggia.
The interior impresses the rigorous beauty of the large single-nave space that rises to a height of about 15 meters, ending in a series of wooden trusses. The overall style is Romanesque, but it emphasizes the Gothic mold in the area of the ancient presbytery and the Renaissance arches of the side chapels and the two arches of the sixteenth century gray stone side niches built by the family Tinto in 1567 and probably Rosetana. Small baroque touches are the high altar, below which is a cistern, and the windows along the right wall. In addition to the Statue of the Virgin the sacred building houses a beautiful baptismal font and the statue of Saint Albert the Norman, bishop of the disappeared city of Montecorvino; every May 16 from the church departs a penitential pilgrimage very felt and scenic, for the presence of high poles decorated with colored scarves, which brings the effigy of the saint to the ruins of the cathedral of which he was bishop.
On the outside right side and behind the church there is a large paved square; once there was a beautiful hanging garden. Admiring the Church externally you are fascinated by the bell tower that sports, from its height of 30 meters, a wonderful dome covered in yellow and green majolica.
