Small church with important frescos
The small 13th century church Sant’Agostino is located somewhat aside the historic centre between Piazza Cavour and Porta Montanara. It harbours some of the most important and valuable testimonials of Rimini’s school of painting, one of the most important Northern Italian art movements of the 14th century, inside. Based on Giotto’s oeuvre in Padua, native artists such as Neri, Giuliano and Giovanni da Rimini created scenes from the story of Mary and the life of John the Baptist.
The remains of these valuable frescos can be admired in the apse and the chapel of the Gothic campanile.
