Pieve di San Michele Arcangelo

The Parish Church of St Michael Archangel, recalling the Byzantine Ravenna style, dates back to the VI/VII cent. It was built where the original village, the Pagus Acervolanus, rose; the building is one of the most important examples of ecclesiastical architecture from the early Middle Ages and is probably the oldest church in the Rimini area, dedicated to the patron saint of the city of Santarcangelo. Inside there were a mosaic floor and marble decorations but today remains only a few fragments.
