Do not fill this in!===Façade=== The façade is unadorned, except for an oculus (porthole window) high up. If you could get into the church (for which you would need special permission), you will see that this window was inserted in the gable of the original façade, but not below the original apex. It is slightly displaced to the church's right. Also, if you look closely you will see that the original window which occupied the oculus was octagonal. This oculus, the campanile and the horizontal piece of walling to the right of the bellcote were added in an unrecorded restoration of the church in the late 15th century. Again, this is all obvious in the inside view. The campanile, or bellcote, has two round-headed opening pierced through where the pair of bells would have hung. The main entrance door used to be walled up until very recently, but is now unblocked. It has a lintel made out of a fragment of ancient architrave, with a shallow relieving arch in the fabric above which has not prevented its cracking. This lintel rests on two carved limestone blocks which seem anciently to have been parts of ancient colonnettes.
