One kilometre from the city stands the oldest example of architecture from the Byzantine Exarchate or early Romanesque period.  Inside the church are remains (a small stone memorial altar, marble artefacts, a ciborium, etc.) attributable to a period between the seventh and twelfth centuries, to which the crypt also belongs. 

The entire surface of the apse is covered with a wonderful cycle of frescoes representing the Majesty of Christ, the Apostles and the Crucifixion, attributed to Pietro da Rimini, one of the leading exponents of the Giotto’sRiminischool and painted in the 1330s.
