This is the earliest parish of the area; it was founded in the X century by a group of Irish pilgrims that settled here and worshipped St Patrick. From a simple niche for worshippers, it developed into a parish that was modified over the centuries; the current architecture, with a longer nave, a new façade and a bell tower, dates back to the end of the XVIII century. The precious XIX century bell tower mechanism has been recently replaced.
The vaults and the apse were decorated by the Ferrarese painter Augusto Paglierini.
The archaeological digs, inside the church, have brought to light, underneath the current church floor, wall structures and floors belonging to the previous phases of the building.
