    Cathedrals

    The most famous cathedral is the Malatesta Temple, the first example of Renaissance architecture commissioned by Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta in Rimini and based on a design by Leon Battista Alberti.
    It was never finished, due to the former’s defeat (1463) and subsequent death (1468). Consecrated in 1173, the cathedral of San Leo in San Leo is a huge Romanesque-shaped building with a raised presbytery surmounting a large crypt that houses the lid of the sarcophagus of St. Leo.
    As in all ancient Christian religious buildings its apses face east, so the entrance is at the side. In 1577 a “new cathedral” was built in Pennabilli. Renovated several times during the 19th and 20th centuries, it joins the one in San Leo.
