More discreet, but perhaps even more widespread in the hinterland of Rimini, are the testimonies of sacred art: a dense network of monasteries and small parish churches, scattered over the hills and plains.
A fine example of which is the Romanesque parish church of Santarcangelo di Romagna, which dates back to the sixth century A.D., or the sanctuary of Madonna di Saiano, along the Marecchia river, built in the seventeenth century on the ruins of a pagan temple. The bronze door is the work of contemporary sculptor, Arnaldo Pomodoro.
Visit the pre-Romanesque church of St. Leo, standing next to the Cathedral, which is in turn one of the most important examples of Romanesque architecture in central Italy.
The Monastery of Poor Clares in San Marino, which, besides being a refined space for exhibitions, can also accommodate conferences and seminars.
