It is in the neoclassical style of a Latin cross, with a large dome and skylight; He has three chapels on each side and a single nave. It is the work of Luigi Voghera, that in this period he worked long and prolifically in the territory between the Oglio and Po, linking its name to almost all of the nineteenth century architectural features, such as the castles and villas of Torre de 'Picenardi, of San Lorenzo Aroldo, Cicognolo etc. Cascina Cavalca (mot)- Next to the church Cascina Cavalca is the result of the transformation of the ancient Casteldidone Castle, which already in 1309 was described as a village surrounded by a moat of defense and has a fortified tower. This is the oldest part of the country. The high part of the farm is all that remains of the tower which has a fifteenth-east ledge, as well as the wide corridor with ceiling sail. The old porch with brick columns and capitals with rounded arches ogive denotes a Lombard Gothic origin. The castle was the shelter for the inhabitants in case of war danger and was therefore equipped with ample space for provisioning and hospitalization.
