A number of historic sources document the existence of the building as far back as A.D. 1000. The existing parish church was rebuilt in 1600, larger than the former one and with a different orientation. Its wealth of decoration took its current form in the nineteenth century. The building has three naves and contains not only a statue of the Madonna della Lettera sculpted by an unknown sculptor in 1766 but a number of fresco cycles by Nicolò Barabino. The Baroque facade has a niche containing a marble statue of Saint James in its centre.

Holy Mass is celebrated at 8 AM on weekdays and at 10 AM on Sundays and Holidays. Morning prayers are said at 7:45. The parish's administrative office is open Tuesday to Friday from 8:30 AM to 12:30.
