Diano San Pietro
The church, entitled to Saint Peter Apostle, seem built on remains of a Roman temple devoted to goddess Diana.
The oldest structure yet partly existing is the baptistery (V cent.), while the bell-tower, in romanic-provençal style, date back to the XII cent.
In the course of the time the edifice was modernized, just at the building of the baroque façade, completed in 1772, and other minor works during XIX cent.
In 1564 samperotti, fearing a Moresque attack, built an high fencing wall (down in the photo) to take refuge on the parvis, but they are luckily spared.
