  • In the medieval village, near the big rock that dominates the town of Gradara, this small, ancient Church (founded presumably around the year 1000) has a Romanesque façade loosely and an extremely simple. The Interior consists of a single Hall has some interesting frescoes (the lamb and the Pelican, which resemble Christ; the evangelists above the main altar); on the main altar is placed an eighteenth-century painting of good quality (author the Italian Gianandrea Lazzarini). The most attractive element consists of a crucifix, carved in wood by brother Innocenzo from Petralia (1591-1648), showing three different expressions of Christ-suffering, dying, dead-depending on your point of view from which it is observed. A small, interesting Church, well cared for.

  • The Church is located near the entrance to the Castle. Visit her worth at least because that would look at ancient carved crucifix, which is a local heirloom.

  • This is about a very old church, located inside the Malatesta fortress with a fourteenth-century façade of bricks without decorations, commissioned by Giovanni Malatesta da Verucchio in the 13th century. While its interior, after the collapse of the earthquake in the 17th century, has been carefully restored 18th-century architectural dictates ... Always inside you can see a magnificent wooden crucifix of 1500 gift, dei Conti Barzi-Moscow. Watching him carefully and following the numbers placed on the altar, Christ seems to have three clearly defined expressions that change depending on the angle of the observer (right or 1 it seems that Christ can utter a few words, Center, or 2 you're exhaling its last breath and left 3 or the serenity of the face of the dead Christ). A place of prayer.
