Appignano Saint John the Baptist Church

Saint John the Baptist Church was built on a 14th century polygonal fortified tower and adapted to an apse by filling in the spaces between battlements and cutting the scarp wall. The church structure was enlarged in the second half of the 14th century; on this occasion the bell tower was erected. In the 16th century, the parishes of Saint John’s and Saint Peter’s were united. Between the second and third decades of the 1600’s, the refurbishment of Saint Joseph’s altar took place and an altarpiece portraying the Marriage of the Virgin was made. Around 1750, the church underwent a major renovation and the consecration of the new church is recalled in the cartouche of the portal. In 1931 the interior was decorated by the painter Tommaso Gentili of Osimo.
