This church is on one of the country walks that you can do in the hills around the outskirts of Bologna. It is nearly one thousand years old with the oldest structure dating back to 1062. The church has undergone numerous renovations over the ages. A beautiful cloister was added to it and it was adapted by military engineers. However in 1892, it was reconsecrated and fully restored. Inside, it still has the same old transeptal division between the Canon's choir and the congregation. The cloister is beautiful; it's surrounded by a portico with small columns from the 12th Century. There is an attractive well in the middle of the square which was created in the 16th Century.
