Fodor's Review

The Malatesta constructed the Tempio Malatestiano, also called the Basilica Cattedrale, with a masterful facade by Leon Battista Alberti (1404–72). Inside, the chapel to the right of the high altar contains a wonderful (if faded) fresco by Piero della Francesca (1420–92) depicting Sigismondo Maletesa kneeling before a saint. The two greyhounds in the right corner are significantly less faded than the rest.
