It is worth visiting the Church of San Giovanni Battista, in the Minerbio's main street. One of the most beautiful in the Pianura Bolognese, it was built in the 18th century on a project by the architect Carlo Francesco Dotti.

Inside there are some important works, including an "Our Lady of the Sorrows" from the School of Guido Reni, the object of particular popular devotion, tradition wanting that she has on various occasions turned her gaze onto the faithful.

There is a noteworthy group of sculptures of the Glory by Giuseppe Mazza, a typical example of high Bolognese Baroque style.


The Patron Saint of Minerbio is San Giovanni Battista and is celebrated on 24th June.
