    Malatesta & Montefeltro

    Parish Church of Our Lady Santa Maria Assunta

    San Leo

    This is the oldest sacred monument in the Montefeltro region. According to tradition, the church was built over the cell where the fourth-century St Leo was wont to retire in order to pray.

    A basilica-plan church, it has three aisles and a crypt, and the presbytery is raised above the level of the aisles. A fine ninth-century ciborium stands in the presbytery. Like the nearby Cathedral, the church does not have a door in the façade because of the uneven nature of the rocky ground on which it stands; instead there are two side doors. Its present-day appearance was determined by rebuilding work in the eleventh century.
