The paleochristian remains below the apse demonstrate that this church already existed in the eighth century, although it was later modified, and was finally consacrated in 1194. At the beginning of the 16th Century the three naves were joined together, the roof raised, and the side chapels were opened. After the Second World War the church underwent other changes. The lower half of the façade is Romanesque and includes some large corbels, all that is left of the original. The entrance is in red marble with three crosses carved in relief. There are three apses inside, and two chapels in red marble decorated with tondos and rosettes dating back to the beginning of the 16th Century. The main altar dates back to the 18th Century, while the vestry is preceded by a room with the remains of 16th-century frescoes and a crib from the 15th Century. You enter into the Sacello delle Sante Teuteria e Tosca, the oldest church in the city, from the vestry.
