As with many Italian churches the outside is pretty plain but inside there is plenty of interest (if you like old churches - which I do). Cute little carvings of cherubs and would you believe elephants decorate the inside, it is worth a visit.

the history of the tempio, off course, is sad. It 's dedicated solely to the tiran Sigismondo Malatesta.Nowadays it's famous for it's art inside.

I wasn't able to go to this cathedral but my sisters were and they were impressed. It is centrally located near the other antiquity sites in central Rimini and certainly worth a visit. Coming from America seeing these well-maintained sites is a bit overwhelming but...More

Alberti, Piero della Francesca, and even Giotto. These names are good reasons to visit this place. A fantastic decoration. Stunning.
