In the upper part of the town is the church of San Nicolò di Bari (13th century) of Romanesque structure with a single nave, with extensions of the centuries. XIV and XVIII. Inside, interesting works from the 16th and 18th centuries are preserved. Leaving Chiesanuova, one quickly reaches Legnaro, home of Domenico Viviani (1772-1841), professor of botany and founder of the Botanical Garden of the University of Genoa. The village is structured in three nuclei at the center of which is the church of San Pietro (news from 1235).
