Chiesa di San Giovanni Battista

The Church of San Giovanni Battista was built before the 9th century. Its contemporary bell tower shows two rows of big single lancet windows topped by double lancet and triple lancet windows.The building was first destroyed and then rebuilt to its present shape in 1683 by Pietro Grossi, one of the most active architects in Ravenna in the second half of the 17th century. Between 17th and 18th century, the diocesan administration carried out a series of restoration works in numerous religious buildings of the town, in order to counteract the phenomenon of subsidence.
