This historic Roman Catholic church was completed in 1315. It is a pastiche of different styles: Romanesque on the outside and Gothic and late Renaissance on the inside. Beside the church, there is an elegant Renaissance portico, supported by sandstone columns.

This is among the most beautiful churches in Bologna, no small feat as so many dot the city’s landscapes. It was founded in the 13th century and is a classic beauty of Italian architecture. The high ceilings and quietness that create atoo bad sanctuary for soothing the mind and spirit. Worth a visit. It is a shame that Bolognesi tolerate the graffiti all over the city that desecrates its culture and historic splendor.

The highlight in this church is the Bentivoglio chapel located in semi darkness behind the altar. €0.50 allows you to light up the chapel. There are several lovely painted frescos which apparently were commission's to celebrate a local family's victory in a 1488 local feud.One of the frescos,while set in a religious context, contains portraits of family members incorporated into the scene. An unusual feature at the time it was painted.

As you enter, you are met with an imposing Sanctuary with high ceilings. There are many special art pieces and frescoes - a great joy to be able to pray in this house of God and to be surrounded by many beautiful objects of worship.
