In the central square, the piazza del Popolo, there is the Collegiate Church of San Giovanni Battista. A collegiate church, in Christianity, is a church where the daily office of worship is maintained by a College of canons; a non-monastic, or secular community of clergy, organised as a self-governing corporate body.


The construction began in 1671, designed by Paolo Emilio Canali, with a 19th- century façade.

In the Baroque interior, among rich 18th-century stuccoes which have recently been restored to their original splendour, is the Museo di arte sacra della Collegiata, with works by the main exponents of Bolognese painting from the 16th to the 19th century: Francesco Francia, Alessandro Tiarini, Gandolfi brothers and Donato Cretii.
