A church of very ancient origins, and one of Rimini's largest and most important.
Erected in 1625 on a site previously occupied by the Carmelites, it was rebuilt by Gaetano Cupioli in 1767-72.
The interior, with a single nave, is eleborately decorated with stucco ornaments by Antonio Trentanove in 1770.
The many precious works of art here include, in the first chapel on the right, a "holy Trinity, Virgin and Patrons of Rimini" (1611) by Cosimo Piazza, above the second altar a "Sermon of John the Baptist' by Andrea Boscoli, above the third altar a "Martyrdom of St Gaudentius" (1794) by G.
