San Giovanni Battista

San Giovanni Battista Review

The 13th-century Romanesque church of San Giovanni Battista was restored to its pre-Baroque simplicity in 1926. As you go in through a side door—the original end door and facade were incorporated into later buildings—note the interesting sculpted decorations in the porch. The interior still maintains its original cross vaulting, ogival arches, and curious capitals.
