Pieve di San Salvatore

Address: 
via San Salvatore, n. 24 - Rimini
Phone: 
0541/730159
Website: 

The Parish church probably dates back to the 12th century and was constructed in part with bricks and in part using blocks of stone. Inside there is an elegant apse, a single nave, and simple decoration.
The structure was built reutilizing material from the Roman period (this is evident in the fragments of relief work with a leafy motif on the façade, the Roman cippus with inscriptions, and the area scraped to reveal a memoir dated 1318 regarding the painter Rainaldo).
Along the inside walls and at the main alter there are four exquisite Romanesque capitals.
Outside the church a large, badly damaged Roman capital serves as a pedestal for a cross. On the alter there is a statue of San Salvatore, the work of Cesare Ferronato.
It seems the Parish church was built on the ruins of a pagan temple dedicated to Ceres.
Of particular interest is a mutilated plaque with Gothic characters - from the 14th century - located on the north facing outer wall of the church.

Getting there: 
The church can be reached from Rimini by taking Via Coriano to a locality called "Osteria del Fiume", from which point the road leads directly to the Romanesque church situated on the bank of the Marano stream. Bus n° 3
Additional notes: 

Open on Saturday afternoon or previous agreement with the keeper.
