ⓘ San Giovanni Battista, Rimini

The church was located adjacent to the site of a paleo-Christian basilica, dedicated to San Stefano, and erected sometime in the 5th century under the patronage of Galla Placidia. The basilica was razed during the troubles of the 8th century. In its place, it is documented that by 1144 arose this church dedicated to John the Baptist. In 1573, it was assigned to the Discalced Carmelite Order, and in 1605, it joined the parish of San Gregorio. In 1767 to 1772, the Carmelites commissioned Gaetano Cupioli to rebuild the church in a late baroque style. In 1797, the church and convent as suppressed, and granted to the Capuchin friars till 1805, when it became again a parish.
