The Tempio Maletestiano, known as the Cathedral of Santa Colomba, is an architectural masterpiece that was built at the request of Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta in the 15th century. The building was designed, where the Church of St. Francesco had previously stood, by architect Leon Battista Alberti, whose forms were inspired by Roman tradition. The facade and sides, with a sequence of arches and a marble pediment, are reminiscent of the Arch of Augustus and the Bridge of Tiberius. The interior has a single nave and deep dedicated side chapels; in one of these one can contemplate the ceiling fresco created by Piero della Francesca. Also inside it is possible to admire Giotto’s crucifix.
