San Giacomo Maggiore

Embellished with a lovely Renaissance gallery, this 13C church houses the splendid Bentivoglio chapel, decorated in part by Lorenzo Costa, from Ferrara, and adorned with the Virgin and saints on a throne, painted around 1494 by Francesco Francia. A lawyer of the Bentivoglio family is buried in a beautiful tomb by Jacopo della Quercia in the ambulatory (c. 1433).
