As with many Italian churches the outside is pretty plain but inside there is plenty of interest (if you like old churches - which I do). Cute little carvings of cherubs and would you believe elephants decorate the inside, it is worth a visit.

This is close to the centre and the interior of the church is nice and it is free to visit. One of the must see churches in Rimini.

the history of the tempio, off course, is sad. It 's dedicated solely to the tiran Sigismondo Malatesta.Nowadays it's famous for it's art inside.

Tempio Malatestiano is a big and beautiful church, but it is not much to see in it. In spite of that, it is still a must-see in Rimini.
