Pieve di Sant' Ilario in Tornano

Pieve di Sant' Ilario in Tornano

No trace remains of the ancient church of Sant'Ilario in Tornano though it is reasonable to assume it was located at "La Piva" (La Pieve, in local dialect), that was cited as being 500 steps from the castle of Tornano in the report of an apostolic visit that took place in 1574. The earliest records referring to the church are two scrolls dating from the first half of the tenth century.The pre-existence of the church Pieve di Tornano, of which no visible trace now remains, is revealed only by the name of the place, La Pieve.
