Cesena Cathedral

The current Cathedral of Cesena was built in the late 14th century following the initial project of an architect from Untervaldo. The cathedral has not always been located in its current position. In fact, before the rule of the Malatesta family (1379–1465), it was located inside the citadel (known as the Murata). Between 1443 and 1456, the church was equipped with a bell tower based on a design by Maso di Pietro di Lugano. At the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries, the upper part of the façade was completed to a design by Mario Codussi.

Abbazia di San Mercuriale

The Abbey of San Mercuriale, also known as the Church of San Mercuriale, is an abbey completed around 1181 in Lombard Romanesque style after the previous structure burnt down in 1173. In the 14th century, the porch was replaced by the Gothic portal that still exists and the two side chapels on the façade were built as an extension of the structure and demolished in 1646. The apse was also rebuilt in 1585. In 1646, extensive reconstruction work was undertaken. The work concerned both the façade and the body of the church, with the aim of creating a well-lit interior environment. The 14th-century connecting portico was also demolished to make room for the two entrances to the side aisles. The tower of the Abbey of San Merculiare, at 75 metres long, is one of the highest in the country.
