Semelano is a parish of Montese, immersed in the greenery of the fields and woodland in the midst of which stands out the Church of St Peter and Paul, dating back to the XIII century. The church has three naves, with columns made of tuff and finely decorated capitals made of local stone; an organ with fifteen pipes built in the eighteenth century by Domenico Traeri; and a painting depicting the martyrdom of the saints, a copy of a seventeenth century altarpiece attributed to Ludovico Carracci. Also of interest are the vicarage, with its moulded portal and sandstone windows, and the seventeenth-century house which stands opposite the church. Just a short distance away we come across the Ca' del Duca, built in the XIII century, with its unusual ogival arch.
