    After the earthquake of February 1887, the parish church was completely restored.
    On March 26, 1999, Pope John Paul II elevated the church of Saint Michael to the rank of minor basilica.
    Laurent Lavagna, master builder, is inspired by the church of the Annunziata of Genoa, to erect this baroque building which still preserves a set of damask drapes of the eighteenth century, offered by Prince Honoré III at his wedding. Saint-Michel was declared a Historic Monument in 1947.
    In order to finance the construction of this great building, the council of the community «se» voted an exceptional tax lifted for twenty years and hitting the 40th of the income from the harvests of citrus fruits, oil and wine.
    The first works of the construction of this church led to the demolition of the only religious building within walls. During this time, the services were held in a room of the medieval fortification, now two floors under the choir. The work ranged from 1640 to 1653.
