This is one of the best Renaissance architecture example. If you are visiting Rimini, it is definitely worth a visit as it is a kind of unique in its type.

A building that is considerated as the first renaissance temple in Italy, and that appears in all Art History books! A great surprise when I first saw it. The inside is beautifully decorated, many masterpieces (frescoes, sculptures,...).
