This is one of the oldest churches in Modena. The name "delle Asse" (of the planks) comes from the fact that, where the church now stands, there was once a wooden bridge that crossed the Canalgrande.
A flight of steps leads up into the church with its single nave and six side chapels. The inside is simple and elegant while the chapels are opulently decorated.
