Rimini's Via Coriano runs right out to the "Osteria del Fiume". From here the road goes straight up to a Romanesque church, which is built on the banks of the River Morano. It is a parish church which probably dates back to the 12th Century. It was perhaps built upon the ruins of a Pagan temple dedicated to Venus. The church is built partly in brick and partly in stone. It has an elegant outside and the inside is simple with a single Nave. There are obvious fragments containing bits of leafy relief on the fa├žade and there is a memorial stone with an epigraph which makes it clear that the church was largely built out of Roman remains. Inside, they have kept four Romanesque pillars on the walls and around the high altar. They are beautifully made and one of the largest Roman pillars (which is largely damaged) serves as a base for the cross outside the church. There is a statue of the Savior on the high altar which was carved by Cesare Ferronato.
