Malatestiano Temple, Rimini
Categories: Churches, Tourist Spots
Originally a Gothic-style Franciscan church, Malatestiano Temple was expanded in the 15th century by Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta, who commissioned its transformation into a personal mausoleum for his lover and himself. Though he died before seeing the project's completion, it remains an important work of Renaissance architecture. See the stories of Malatesta’s ancestors and his own life in the works throughout, and stop to observe Giotto’s crucifix, one of the most celebrated masterpieces within. Though the church was heavily damaged during World War II, it was later restored with pieces recovered from the rubble.
