Originally dedicated to the Holly Spirit and, subsequently, to Santa Colomba, a Spanish martyr, the Cathedral of Santa Colomba is said to date back to the early 11th century, meaning it is one of the oldest places of worship in Rimini. It is, chronologically speaking, the first cathedral of Rimini, and is had benefited from this title until the late 18th century, when the Church of Sant’Agostino was upgraded to the dignity of a cathedral.

Nowadays, only the bell tower of the former cathedral reminds of the splendor and magnificence of this place of worship. It is, along with Rocca Malatestiana, the most notable attraction in Piazza Malatesta.
