The Parishchurch, as currently visible, is the result of reconstruction following the Battle of Ravenna in 1512; the “Gotti” (barbarians), referred to on the inscribed façade tablet, would have been the French who sackedRavennaand the surrounding countryside that year.

 The paintings in the apse deserve a mention, almost universally attributed to the Ravenna painter Luca Longhi or his school, as do the marble artefacts, notably a small limestone block where you can see the Blessing hand of God, part of a “wayside cross” or marker placed along the pilgrimage routes.
