Church of San Giovanni Battista - Belvedere


The castle and the church stood on a plain where the eye ranges far in the Romagna landscapes, hence the name Belvedere.

The landslide of 1667 bankrupted the remains of the castle and the parish church. The church was then moved further down in its current location, and the new village was built around it.

In 1850 the church was enlarged and transformed.

In 1916 a new rectory was built and the church was adorned with a colored marble floor tiles, altars and a baptistery in grit.
