Located in the village Trebbo di Reno of Castel Maggiore, this church has had a troubled existence: its original structure having been swept away in a flood.

The present structure is the result of numerous rebuilding works carried out since the 17th century.

In 1887, the belltower was shifted by four metres since it was leaning dangerously.

The beautifully made altar piece is the work of Francesco Gessi, from the School of Guido Reni. The painting depicts St. John the Baptist in the desert.
