History

This church was founded at the beginning of the 11th century and named for Saint John the Baptist Beheaded. Reconstruction took place in the 13th century, but the façade was not added until the beginning of the 18th century. The church was suppressed by Napoleon in 1818 and was then used as a warehouse. In 1945, a serious renovation took place, revealing many covered frescoes and a ship's keel ceiling. In 1994, the church reopened to offer Russian Orthodox services.
