  • The Church of the commandery is located in Borgo Durbecco in Faenza. It is part of the parish of Saint Antoninus. The first documents some of the Church date back to 1137 and attest to its function as a hospice for pilgrims going to the Holy land. The building has a whole series of architectural overlays not perfectly harmonized among them because of the long time period (3-400 years) in which they were made. The Romanesque church presents the apse, a squat, square bell tower and a portico with arches on the side of the road. The Loggia was built probably to withstand the pressure of time and avoid structural failure previously occurred. The façade is decorated with glazed bowls at the peak of the gable. The Interior has a nave with lowered since built after 1300 crash caused most probably by an earthquake. The apse is decorated with a large fresco by Girolamo da Treviso executed in 1533. It portrays the Madonna enthroned with the child in your arms, between Mary Magdalene and Saint Catherine of Alexandria; alongside the Magdalene are Saint John the Baptist and Fra Sabba (who had commissioned the fresco) kneeling. At the top, on the apse, appears the figure of the Eternal Father among a swarm of angels. The sides of the fresco, in chiaroscuro, the figure of the Archangel Michael and Saint Jerome.
