History

This church is said to have been founded in the 9th century, however documentation does not mention the church until well into the 13th century. This version of the church was demolished in the 18th century and rebuilt, in the image of the Pantheon in Rome. This church was named San Simeon Piccolo as it was smaller than the Church of San Simeon Grande when it was first built in the 13th century; however, the 18th century renovation substantially increased the size of this church. Despite the fact that the names no longer describe the churches in size, they have remained.
