The basilica was built during the 16th century, on the project of Bernardino Tavella (16th century) for the Lateran canons. The facade, in Istria Stone was modified in neoclassical style in the second half of the 18th century on the project of Camillo Morigia (1743-1795). The inside is divided into three naves with transept surmounted by a high cupola. The “Greek Madonna” a marble bas-relief datable to the 11th and 12th century representing a praying Virgin Mary is venerated. It is said that it arrived to Ravenna miraculously from Constantinople in 1100.
